Catalan parliament speaker Laura Borràs defended Catalonia’s right to self-determination at the Palace of Westminster on Monday. The Junts per Catalunya politician described the trip as an opportunity to “strengthen the bonds of friendship” between the Catalan and British parliaments.
Borràs met with various MPs, including Dame Eleanor Laing, the deputy speaker of the House of Commons, as well as members of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Catalonia, a group that was set up in March 2017 following a visit from Raül Romeva, Catalonia’s then-foreign affairs minister, to discuss matters relating to the independence push.

“This institutional exchange continues the tradition of previous Catalan parliament speakers,” Borràs said. “It above all allows us to continue working towards the defense and recognition of the right to self-determination.”
