Lord Fowler backs calls for national Aids memorial

Lord Fowler, the Lord Speaker of the House of Lords, has backed calls for the UK’s first ever national Aids memorial.

Earlier this month, he announced he was stepping down to sit as an independent member of the House in order to campaign on LGBT+ issues, in particular HIV and Aids.

BBC Breakfast brought him together with two people who have their own memories of the Aids crisis, to discuss why the Aids Memory UK campaign for a memorial is so important.
