MPs to discuss Richard III in Parliament

The final resting place for Richard III's remains will be argued in Parliament today.

The remains of the monarch were discovered in a car park in Leicester last year.

He is due be re-interred at Leicester Cathedral next year despite campaigns to have him buried in York.

King Richard III did a lot for York and the North of England and during his life made arrangements to be buried here. He was not well treated in Leicester after his death and I think his soul would rest in peace back in York.

– HUGH BAYLEY MP, LABOUR, YORK CENTRAL
