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?

Armed Forces Bill: New Clause 2 — Payments to veterans suffering from mesothelioma (11 Jan 2016)

David Anderson: ...the beginning, and without it we probably would not be where we are today in trying to right this wrong. The issue is of interest to Members across the House.

Member for Moray (Angus Robertson), asked the Prime Minister: “Does the Prime Minister agree that everything...

Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords] (3 Dec 2015)

Wendy Morton: raise awareness and funds for an incredibly important charity that supports armed forces veterans. In the village of Pelsall it encourages the whole of the local community to knit poppies in advance of Remembrance Sunday. The red poppies were placed over the clock tower, and the way in which the charity brought the community together and raised funds is another example of why the...

Business of the House (3 Dec 2015)

Bob Blackman: On Remembrance Sunday, an organisation projected on to the House of Commons a swastika with the message “Modi not welcome”. We know it happened, because the organisation put out a statement saying that it had done that. We have photographic evidence and witness statements from those who saw and took photos of those responsible. We know that the message was completely wrong, Mr...

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? The Prime Minister told me how ill he was on Remembrance Sunday, and I am pleased that he was able to visit him at that time. Also, on behalf of the many Members who worked with Chris Martin when we were in government, I would like to say how much we appreciate the professional work that...

In line with the policy, the Assembly Commission also allows its charity of the year up to five days...

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?

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Trident (16 Nov 2015)

Scotland Bill (Programme) (No.2): Clause 11 — Scope to modify the Scotland Act 1998 (9 Nov 2015)

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...

Church Commissioners: Memorial Service: Civilians Killed in World War 2 (5 Nov 2015)

Caroline Spelman: As we approach Remembrance Sunday, this is an excellent time to remind hon. Members that during the remembrance service on Sunday, which we will no doubt all attend, there is a prayer that specifically relates to the suffering of civilians in the war. 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...
