Terry Higgins Memorial Quilt panel 6 - Hansard

Panel 6 diagram

This panel represents Terry’s time working at Parliament for Hansard (the official report of all Parliamentary debates) in the 1970s and includes quotes from people that worked with Terry.

'He was one of the team that typed copy for us,' remembers former Hansard editor Ian Church. 'To describe him as effervescent would be something of an understatement. He was a very lively colleague and, as I recall, very popular – a bit of a Welsh whirlwind.'

John Parker, who worked as a House reporter, recalls that he 'typed like the wind', helping him and the editorial team to meet tight deadlines.

The Times New Roman typeface in green represents the bound volumes used for House of Commons reports. Big Ben, Hansard and the CPSA (Civil and Public Services Association – the union representing civil servants, where Terry was an active member) logos are also featured.

The panel was produced by Portia Dadley, Hannah Minns and Anna Murray from Hansard, using textiles donated by colleagues at Hansard, bringing together the fabric that makes this panel. The panel was skilfully sewn together by Pat Cave from The Quilters’ Guild.
