Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Nov 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: On behalf of the Opposition, may I also express my condolences to the family of Chris Martin on his death?

Compulsory Emergency First Aid Education (State-funded Secondary Schools) Bill (20 Nov 2015)

Robert Jenrick: increasing our awareness of the issue. I saw how important first aid is just over a year ago when I was standing with 600 of my constituents outside the parish church in Newark for the Newark Remembrance Sunday parade and an 82-year-old Army veteran had a severe heart attack two paces behind me. Six hundred of my constituents and I stood feeling pretty helpless at not being able to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Parachute Regiment: Arrest (18 Nov 2015)

Tom Elliott: The Minister has said that he does not think there is any inequality. How, then, does he explain that more than 20 PSNI officers are investigating Bloody Sunday soldiers, but not one police officer is investigating the 11 murders in Enniskillen on Remembrance Sunday in 1987?

Bob Blackman: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. Last night, on Remembrance Sunday, a picture of a swastika was projected on to the House of Commons with a message saying, “Modi not welcome”. As you will be aware, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, is visiting here later this week. Can you confirm that this will be thoroughly investigated, that it has nothing whatsoever to do with...

Written Answers — Home Office: Remembrance Day: Parades (6 Nov 2015)

Mike Penning: Remembrance ceremonies and parades are an important and valued means by which communities across the country honour the sacrifice of British service personnel. This is not an issue about police funding. The police have never had a policy of routinely policing Remembrance Sunday parades or other special occasions. The management of these events is a matter for event organisers in conjunction...

Business of the House (5 Nov 2015)

Pete Wishart: I, too, thank the Leader of the House for announcing next week’s business. I associate my party with the remarks about Remembrance day on Sunday. All my colleagues will be at services right across their constituencies in Scotland. I also reinforce the Leader of the House’s remarks about the contribution from overseas soldiers. On Sunday, I laid a wreath at the Polish war graves in...

Caroline Spelman: As we approach Remembrance Sunday, this is an excellent time to remind hon.

Coventry Cathedral is a national entity for recognising the suffering and loss of civilians, and other churches around the land recognise the...

Opposition Day — [9th Allotted Day]: Policing (4 Nov 2015)

Thomas Tugendhat: ..., but I am very sorry that she is not staying in Tonbridge, where she has done such fantastic work. One of the PCSOs has done fantastically well in West Malling. Phillip Harrison has been the PCSO on duty on Remembrance Sunday for at least three years—probably more—and he will be there again this Sunday. Very quietly, like so many PCSOs, he will be carrying out his duties armed...

Joanna Cherry: ...such as Liberty, Justice and Amnesty that remind us daily why it is important to protect our civil liberties, which were won and protected at the cost of the lives of the many people we will be remembering this Remembrance Sunday. As David Anderson said in his report, the law in this area needs a thorough overhaul. We need a modern and comprehensive law that can cope with the challenges of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Nov 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: I concur with the Prime Minister’s remarks concerning Remembrance Sunday and Remembrance weekend. We mourn all those who have died in all wars, and surely we also resolve to try and build a peaceful future where the next generation does not suffer from the wars of past generations. Last week I asked the Prime Minister the same question six times and he could not answer. He has now had a...

Military Personnel and Veterans (Children and Young Carers) (3 Nov 2015)

Martin Docherty: I am glad to have secured this Adjournment debate on the need to support the children, young people and young carers of military personnel and veterans. In the week leading up to Remembrance Sunday, I am glad that so many Members—at least on the SNP Benches—have chosen to stay for the debate. Given that we are approaching Remembrance Sunday, I should not need to remind the House...

[Valerie Vaz in the Chair] — NHS (Contracts and Conditions) (14 Sep 2015)

Ben Gummer: of personal experience from both this country and abroad, and who makes sure—no doubt because we often feel chastised if it goes any other way—that the debate is continued with a sense of decorum and a remembrance that our discussions are held in public. We must be aware of the fact that what turns people off political discourse more than anything is a silly repetition of...

Baroness Butler-Sloss: ...perhaps not during Ramadan, which is just about to take place—and so on are barrier breakers. The suggestion was made that other faiths and beliefs should be involved in important public occasions at local level, such as Remembrance Sunday. We all need to be educated in religious literacy, and not only our children. We need to learn the culture of other communities and to celebrate...

Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [HL] — Second Reading (Continued) (10 Jun 2015)

Lord Borwick: ...when charities focus on aggressive fundraising rather than on their objectives. Many have outsourced these functions, and they now give the impression that they are badly run charities. The Mail on Sunday videos showed cynical attempts to get every last penny from donors. Oxfam is one of the charities that outsourced fundraising in such a way. It aims to tackle poverty, but the company...

Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [HL] — Second Reading (10 Jun 2015)

Baroness Corston: ...light up a room. She was one of the kindest people I knew. I always looked forward to her letters, giving me general and continual advice. Her outstanding contribution—selling more poppies for Remembrance Sunday than any other person in this country—is well documented.

Scottish Parliament: Contribution of Veterans (30 Apr 2015)

David Stewart: ...armed forces personnel have a social covenant with our country at times of peace and of war. During times of conflict, I remember the famous lines from John Maxwell Edmonds, which are repeated every remembrance Sunday across Scotland: “When you go home, tell them of us and say For their tomorrow, we gave our today.” The social covenant was best illustrated to me 23 years ago...
