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...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: World War II (28 Nov 2016)

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 While the All Party Parliamentary Group is no longer active, we would be willing to work with any MP or group who has ideas or recommendations on how the valiant...

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: 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...

Terrorist Attack: Nice: UK's Nuclear Deterrent (18 Jul 2016)

James Cartlidge: Is not the true cost the one we remember every Remembrance Sunday—the millions of lives we lost in two world wars? Would the right hon. Gentleman care to estimate the millions of lives that would have been lost in the third conventional war that was avoided before 1989 because of the nuclear deterrent?

Centenary of the Battle of the Somme (29 Jun 2016)

Bill Cash: I wish to make a few comments because the Staffordshire Regiment played a magnificent part in the first world war. I also want to commemorate those we remember on Remembrance Sunday. Their names are read out in St. Mary’s church in Cheadle and in Stone church. We listen to the roll call and think of the brothers, sisters and all the others who were affected by this enormous tragedy. I...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Death in Service of Prison Officer Adrian Ismay (15 Mar 2016)

David Ford: .... He referred to the murder of Mr Stack some years ago in the Republic. Notably, in recent years, when I have attended the Northern Ireland Prison Service memorial service on the Friday before Remembrance Sunday, there has been a representation of uniformed officers of the Irish Prison Service, wearing poppies with shamrocks to show their solidarity on a cross-border basis. That is the...

Battle of the Somme: Centenary — Question for Short Debate (14 Mar 2016)

Lord Empey: ...of reconciliation. Irish Ministers now come to Belfast City Hall on 1 July to join the rest of us in the commemoration ceremony there. An Irish Prime Minister now attends the Enniskillen memorial on Remembrance Sunday. Recognition is taking place on both sides of the border, and this is a small crumb of comfort that has come from such a dreadful set of circumstances. I hope and pray that...

Enterprise Bill [Lords] — [2ndAllocated Day]: Clause 33 — Extended Sunday opening hours and Sunday working (9 Mar 2016)

Edward Leigh: ...issue. I put that point to the Minister, and it is an important one for all of us. I ask all my hon. Friends to think about this, and not just about their careers, before they vote tonight. We as MPs value our Sundays. I have often heard MPs saying, “I’m sorry, but the only thing I will do on a Sunday is attend a Remembrance Sunday event. Otherwise, I want to be with my...

Great Western Railway Routes (8 Feb 2016)

Huw Irranca-Davies: .... The lovely town of Pencoed still has a traditional level crossing, and it is one of the busiest in the land. It is right in the centre, next to the cenotaph and the shops. When we march there on Remembrance Sunday every year, we have to time our marches to take account of what can be a 15-minute wait while the level crossing is closed. Of course, that happens every day of the week, not...

Education: Polish A-level — Question (18 Jan 2016)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...last time. Could we not do something to symbolise the contribution that Poland made to the British victory in the Second World War, for example by encouraging a visible Polish presence at the next Remembrance Sunday commemorations?
