Ed Miliband MP, Leader of the Labour Party and of the Opposition, said following the tragic death of Alan Keen:
“Alan Keen was a decent, generous man and his death is a great loss to the House of Commons and the people of Feltham and Heston.
“Alan was Labour to his core – loyal, passionate about social justice and deeply committed to a fairer society.
“A dedicated football fan, Alan continued to play for the parliamentary football team until his illness took hold. He was a great believer in the power of sport to help young people from disadvantaged backgrounds make the best of their lives.
“Alan was great friend to me and he will be sorely missed by all.”
