EDM | Tributes To The Fallen

Posted on: 12th July 2011

Andrew George MP has signed EDM number 2029 in 2010-11, proposed by Paul Flynn on 04/07/2011.

The motion reads,

That this House records its pride in the valour and professionalism of our military forces; calls on the Government to agree with the request of the people of the Brize Norton area to allow them to honour the fallen in a similar manner to the tributes made by the people of Wootton Bassett; regrets that hon. Members are no longer permitted to read the names of the fallen in the House and that on two occasions the reading of the names by the Prime Minister was moved from Wednesdays to other days; and believes it is the wish of the bereaved and the rest of the nation to recognise fully and publicly the sacrifices of our armed services in order that the true cost of war is never forgotten and so that hon. Members are reminded of the full consequences of our decisions.
