The funeral of Baroness Thatcher will be held next Wednesday 

The funeral of Baroness Thatcher will be held next  - The Queen is to show her respect for Baroness Thatcher by attending the former prime minister's funeral next week, it has been announced.

The service on Wednesday will be held at St Paul's Cathedral, and is expected to be attended by dignitaries from around the world.

It will be the first time the Queen has attended the funeral of one of her prime ministers since Sir Winston Churchill died in 1965.

Lady Thatcher indicated she did not want the state event Churchill was granted, but will receive full military honours - the same status accorded the Queen Mother and Diana, Princess of Wales.

The details emerged as the country continued to reflect on the controversial legacy of its first woman prime minister. Labour leader Ed Miliband has "categorically" condemned a series of rowdy street parties said to be celebrating the demise of the Iron Lady - including one in Bristol where six police officers were hurt.

Tory MP Conor Burns, a friend of the former prime minister, said he was "delighted" that her opponents still felt so strongly. "The hatred that burns in their hearts against Margaret Thatcher is actually an enormous tribute to Margaret Thatcher, because she won," he told ITV.

Parliament has been recalled from its Easter break on Wednesday so that MPs can pay tribute in the chamber. But Labour backbencher John Mann questioned why they could not have waited a few days until recess ended.

"I would have done it on Monday when Parliament reassembles," he said. "I do not know why we are wasting taxpayers' money on an additional session. It is perfectly valid that, when a prime minister dies, MPs can pay tribute, but this could be perfectly properly done on Monday."

Mr Mann said he would not be attending the session. "I will be at the dentist's," he added.

A senior Labour source dismissed suggestions that few of the party's MPs would turn up, insisting "large numbers" would be there. "Ed Miliband made clear his position yesterday. Lady Thatcher was a huge figure in British politics and the world stage," the source said.
