John Vice from the United Kingdom is a friend to many readers of Tiro and, until recently, the Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the journal. In the King’s Honours List that was published on June 16, 2023, John was granted the honour of being named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE). This well-deserved acknowledgement is in recognition of John’s remarkable service to the United Kingdom and an emblem of his significant contributions to Hansard—the official record of all parliamentary debates—at the House of Lords. This prestigious recognition mirrors the high regard in which John’s work is held, not only within the Lords but also among his peers throughout the world. John’s expertise in Hansard has positioned him as a key authority, enhancing the quality of these vital records and thereby fostering greater transparency and understanding of the importance of capturing the oral record of legislative interventions, procedures, and events.

John’s dedication to excellence and his indefatigable pursuit of quality in his profession have set a benchmark for those who will follow in his footsteps. His retirement marks the end of an era of unparalleled service and dedication, and while he will be greatly missed, his many friendships will endure, and his impact will be long-lasting. The OBE is a richly deserved accolade for a man who has spent his career ensuring the accuracy and integrity of debates that shape British society. This honour is a fitting tribute to a true stalwart of the worldwide Hansard community and to a distinguished servant of his people.

Congratulations, John Stanley Vice, OBE!
