British MP took to the Privy Council for trying to save a COP

LONDON, Mar 25 — RIA Novosti, Maria Tobacco. The second Deputy Minister of foreign Affairs of great Britain Tobias Ellwood, a former army officer, was promoted to the members of the Privy Council for trying to save the wounded during the terrorist attack on March 22, a police officer, said the office of the Prime Minister.


According to the report of the office, Queen Elizabeth II “gladly approved the appointment of” Elwood.

The privy Council is an Association of advisers of the Queen, with about 600 members including Prime Minister, Ministers and leader of the opposition, the most influential members of the Parliament, speakers of the house of Commons — past and present. Also the Council consists of the husband and the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II, princes Phillip and Charles. Council meetings are held monthly under the chairmanship of the Queen, they are only some of the members. At full strength, the Privy Council is only in the most exceptional cases.

Elwood, who was in Parliament on the afternoon of 22 March, when a terrorist stabbed a police officer, immediately began to do artificial respiration to the wounded and try to stop the bleeding.

A picture of him with a bloody face shortly after this appeared in the British media.
