As Ministers cannot sign early-day motions, may I exceptionally ask the Secretary of State for a comment on EDM 252, which commemorates the sacrifice of 7,000 British soldiers in the Normandy battle for Hill 112? It was tabled by my hon. Friend Sir William Cash. What it does not say is that his father was one of those 7,000; Captain Paul Cash won the Military Cross a few days before he was killed 70 years ago yesterday.
