The lunch was hosted by Patrons Chairman David Fitzpatrick, who gave special thanks to two of the attendees, former Chairman Nick Mead for his leadership of the Patrons over the past few years and to Brian Moss, who founded the group in 1979. Lord O'Neill of Clackmannan was the parliamentary host for the lunch which took place in the prestigious Cholmondley Room.
