London, July 30 (ANI): Former British Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher's son Mark Thatcher has confirmed that his mother's office in the House of Lords has been closed down.
The office had only one full-time employee in its latter years, who dealt with Thatcher's affairs for the past 20 years, but as her health declined her public engagements also got affected.
Mark said that the office had 'served its purpose.'
"Space is in desperately short supply at the Palace of Westminster, and the feeling was, in all honesty, we simply couldn't justify keeping the office going any longer," the Telegraph quoted one of the Thatcher's associates, as saying.
"If I am honest, I think it highly unlikely that Margaret will now ever be seen in public again," the associate said.
Mark earlier seemed to be positive about his mothers' health.
However, Thatcher's decision not to attend various events such as the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Garter Day ceremony at Windsor, Founder's Day at the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, and the unveiling of a statue of Ronald Reagan told a different story. (ANI)
