Bust of Charles Bradlaugh MP unveiled in Portcullis House

November 4, 2016

A newly commissioned portrait bust of Charles Bradlaugh MP (1833-91) was unveiled yesterday in Portcullis House.Sculpted by Suzie Zamit, the bronze bust was donated to the House of Commons by the National Secular Society, which Bradlaugh founded in 1866 (150 years ago this year).

Because of Bradlaugh’s significance as a parliamentarian, the Speaker’s Advisory Committee on Works of Art has sought to represent him in the Parliamentary Art Collection since the Committee’s founding in 1956. 

The bust will now be placed on display in a public location in the Palace of Westminster.
