A Conservative MP has backed a national campaign to put a portrait of the Queen in every home.

Joy Morrissey, who represents Beaconsfield, said she would be writing to Prime Minister Boris Johnson asking him to give “careful consideration” to the proposal.

The campaign, launched by Morrissey along with the British Monarchists Society, seeks to offer a picture of the Queen to “every home, company and institution that would like one”.

In a statement online, she wrote: “I am proud to be launching a national campaign with the British Monarchists Society to put a portrait of Her Majesty in every home, company and institution that would like one.

“It’s time to rediscover our pride in being British.”

Writing on Twitter, she added: “I think this is a wonderful, patriotic and unifying campaign for our country. I will be writing to the Prime Minister to ask him to give it careful consideration and looking for opportunities to discuss further in Parliament.”
