As part of tributes in Parliament for Nelson Mandela, Labour leader Ed Miliband said the former South African leader was an "enduring symbol of courage, hope and the fight against injustice".
Mr Miliband said: "Today we remember the incomparable life of Nelson Mandela.
"He is an enduring symbol of courage, hope and the fight against injustice. He teaches us the power of forgiveness, showing no bitterness towards his captors, just the love of a country which could be so much better if all of its people could be free."
