The latest commissioned portrait unveiled by the National Portrait Gallery in London is Brendan Kelly's painting of Baroness Boothroyd, the first and so far only female Speaker of the House of Commons. When Betty shouted "Order!" she meant it. She is shown wearing a gold brooch she designed herself based on the House of Commons Logo of a portcullis. Entry to NPG is free (CLICK).
