1997 Onwards - Sir John Major’s Statement on the Margaret Thatcher Scholarship Trust

Below is the text of Sir John Major’s statement on the Margaret Thatcher Scholarship Trust.


The Margaret Thatcher Scholarship Trust is a fitting and lasting legacy to the longest serving British Prime Minister in the last 100 years, and I am delighted to be a Patron.

Education was something about which Margaret cared deeply, and her years at Somerville always held a special place in her heart. It will therefore be wonderful to play a part in identifying and nurturing future generations of leaders, all of whom will have been granted Scholarships in her name.
