Scottish Parliament: Defence Basing Reforms (20 Apr 2017)

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

Awards for Valour (Protection) Bill: Offence of wearing awards with intent to deceive triable summarily (24 Feb 2017)

Gareth Johnson: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is very sad that, come this Remembrance Sunday, any individual can parade in front of widows, veterans, families and loved ones wearing medals that they have not won themselves—they may not have even served—with the intent to deceive and to curry favour? The reason why they will be able to do so is that he has filibustered this Bill.

Scottish Parliament: Awards for Valour (Protection) Bill (2 Feb 2017)

Bill Bowman: ...said that he was the custodian of his family’s medals. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find as many in my family. My father has the Burma Star, which is something in which I take pride. We have all attended events or occasions such as remembrance Sunday and spoken to people—perhaps we know such people—who wear a late family member’s medal with pride. They...

Public Bill Committee: Awards for Valour (Protection) Bill: Campaign awards (1 Feb 2017)

Fabian Hamilton: ..., according to the Defence Committee. Of course it is right that we allow relatives to honour fallen veterans by wearing medals and the hon. Member for Dartford has made adequate provision for that. Indeed, every Remembrance Sunday I wear my father’s medals, of course on the other breast. The Bill contains that important protection and we are very pleased to support it fully.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: World War II: Medals (30 Jan 2017)

Nick Hurd: ...the collective efforts of all those who worked in munitions factories were not forgotten, and this included a number of positive steps such as the march past of former munitions workers in the Remembrance Sunday parade in 2012. While the All Party Parliamentary Group is no longer active, we would be willing to work with any MP or group who has ideas or recommendations on how the valiant...

Scottish Parliament: Holocaust Memorial Day 2017 (26 Jan 2017)

Alasdair Allan: ...with the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, along with our intermediary partner, Interfaith Scotland, to deliver Scotland’s national Holocaust memorial day event each year. This year’s events, which are hosted by East Renfrewshire Council, are under way. On Sunday 22 January there was, as we have heard, an interfaith service that was attended by almost 400 people, with...

National Life: Shared Values and Public Policy Priorities - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (2 Dec 2016)

Lord Popat: ...institutions promote integration by taking part, and being at the forefront of, great British landmarks, including welcoming the Olympic torch for the London 2012 Olympic Games, celebrating Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee, taking part in Remembrance Sunday services every year, and holding vegan-style Great British Bake Offs. I sometimes fear for the future of this country when I find...

National Life: Shared Values and Public Policy Priorities - Motion to Take Note (2 Dec 2016)

Baroness Berridge: ...the time”. It is especially acute at this time of year with the run from 31 August right through to 25 December without a bank holiday. While annual leave can be taken, there is something different when we have a national day off. It is a collective public statement of the value of rest, especially if, like Christmas Day or Easter Sunday, the shops are closed. Shop workers often...

Awards for Valour (Protection) Bill (25 Nov 2016)

Fabian Hamilton: ...a brief story. Back in 1998, not long after I was first elected to the House, the Lord Mayor of Leeds, the late Councillor Linda Middleton, asked me why I was not wearing my late father’s medals at the Remembrance Sunday parade in Leeds city centre. I was not aware that this was even possible, but she said, “If you wear them on your right breast, everybody will know that you...

Business of the House (24 Nov 2016)

Tom Pursglove: This month we have seen another remarkable poppy appeal in Corby and east Northamptonshire. Not only have we seen enormous sums of money raised, but thousands and thousands of people turned out on Remembrance Sunday to pay tribute to our brave armed forces. It was absolutely fantastic to see so many young people involved in the parades. Can we therefore have a debate next week to pay tribute...

International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) (Amendment) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (18 Nov 2016)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: ...in its entirety. For those who continue to argue that we should withdraw our legislative certainty and dilute our aid commitment, the two words “Aid works” are the simple repost. I spoke, as many noble Lords will have done last Sunday, to many young people who were taking part in Remembrance Sunday, about development assistance. It made me reflect back to when I was their...

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (15 Nov 2016)

.... I am reminded of the quotation that is attributed to Edmund Burke, that the only thing “that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men”— and women— “to do nothing.” We have just had remembrance Sunday and, as the collective living memory of the two world wars fades, I am struck that if we do not learn from our history, we may mindlessly...

Scottish Parliament: Engagements (10 Nov 2016)

Nicola Sturgeon: As this is our last session of First Minister’s question time before armistice day and remembrance Sunday, I am sure that all members want to pay tribute and express our gratitude to those who sacrificed their lives for the way of life that we all value. Later today, I will have engagements to take forward the Government’s programme for Scotland.

Scottish Parliament: Cabinet (Meetings) (10 Nov 2016)

Kezia Dugdale: 2. I associate myself and the Labour benches with the First Minister’s remarks on remembrance Sunday. To ask the First Minister when the Cabinet will next meet. (S5F-00462)

Scottish Parliament: Prevention and Eradication of Hate Crime and Prejudice (9 Nov 2016)

Margaret Mitchell: ...that such acts be publicly condemned. As 11 November approaches, such crime is set in stark contrast with the reverence and respect that millions of people throughout the UK show when they attend remembrance Sunday services every year. I look forward to paying my respects this Sunday, at that same Coatbridge cenotaph, which is one of countless memorials located in villages and towns...

Grammar and Faith Schools: Veterans and Service Personnel (8 Nov 2016)

Stephen Doughty: ...service when it came to housing or employment, must be of concern to us all, and serve as a stark reminder of the challenges that are out there. I hope that all of us, when we stand at our cenotaphs and memorials on Remembrance Sunday, will not just say “We will remember them”. We also need to say that we will do right by them as they have done right by us, which will be a...

Defence Estate - Statement (7 Nov 2016)

Earl Howe: ...centres, the more that the population as a whole will feel disconnected from the armed services. Ways must be found, therefore, to prevent that happening. We can see routes through events such as Remembrance Sunday and the commemorations around that. We can see it through the charitable work of organisations such as Help for Heroes, and so on. It is something that we need to bear in mind...

Defence Estate (7 Nov 2016)

Sylvia Hermon: We all know that we are fast approaching another Remembrance Sunday, when we rightly, across this country, remember the great sacrifice of our Armed Forces in two world wars and, more recently, in Afghanistan. In Northern Ireland, of course, we will also be remembering those who served with the British Army and who gave their lives during the troubles. The Secretary of State’s reference...
