Scottish Parliament: Veterans Charities (7 Feb 2018)

Tom Arthur: that goes on at the Hawkhead centre. I thank Liam Kerr for bringing this important debate to the chamber. It is great to be debating the issue in February, and I hope to have more such opportunities—not just around remembrance Sunday—to recognise the fantastic contribution that our veterans charities and communities make to Scotland.

UK Victims of IRA Attacks: Gaddafi-supplied Semtex and Weapons — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (14 Dec 2017)

Jim Shannon: ...not only of those who died in the world wars and other wars, but of the service personnel who lost their life in the troubles. Even more poignantly, this year we marked the 30th anniversary of the Enniskillen bombing, when 11 people were murdered at the cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday. That murder was carried out by way of a bomb made up of products supplied by Gaddafi. There is no argument...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Military Decorations: Aden (13 Dec 2017)

Mark Lancaster: The Armed Forces Memorial, at the National Memorial Arboretum in Shropshire, is a nationally significant focus for Remembrance. It honours those members of the Armed Forces (Regular and Reserve) who were killed on duty while performing functions attributable to the special circumstances and requirements of the Armed Forces, or as a result of terrorist action, and those who died while deployed...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Cadet Units: State Schools (27 Nov 2017)

Tobias Ellwood: ...that cadet units provide life skills, employability and social mobility—things that schools do not necessarily offer themselves. I also pay tribute to the work of the cadets who participated in Remembrance Sunday up and down the country.

Air Force (Constitution) Act 1917 — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (23 Nov 2017)

Robert Jenrick: ...million fund from the Ministry of Defence, it will be the hub for training air cadets throughout the United Kingdom. Newark, like many other towns, has a proud tradition of air cadets: they were out on parade only the other day for Remembrance Sunday. During the second world war, we had many RAF bases—at Balderton, Newark, Ossington, Newton and Winthorpe. Some of them remain; some...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: World War I: Anniversaries (20 Nov 2017)

John Glen: The Centenary of Armistice Day, which in 2018 falls on Remembrance Sunday, will be referenced within the traditional Cenotaph service. In addition there will also be an expanded march-past the Cenotaph after the service, followed by a national service of commemoration and thanksgiving in the evening in Westminster Abbey. There will also be a national concert to mark the centenary of the end...

Scottish Parliament: Veterans and Armed Forces Community (16 Nov 2017)

Bruce Crawford: ...railway station at the beginning of a journey that would see many of them complete their life journeys in places of horror such as the killing fields and muddy hell that was Flanders. When I attend the remembrance service at the Church of the Holy Rude, which is at the top of the city in Stirling, as I did on Sunday past, I cannot help but think that those men walked down past the church...

Northern Ireland Budget Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (14 Nov 2017)

Lord McAvoy: ...Ireland brief. I am sure he will find it interesting. I join the Minister and most noble Lords who have spoken in condemning the actions of the people who left a viable pipe bomb in Omagh on Remembrance Sunday, on a day and in a place designed to cause maximum harm and shock. It was a truly contemptible act. That awful incident is a timely and salutary reminder of Northern Ireland’s...

International Men’s Day — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (14 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Lefroy: ...touch on, such as rough sleepers, of whom 88% were men in 2016, and domestic abuse, which is particularly horrible for women, but can affect men as well, which is sometimes forgotten. We have just concluded the poignant remembrance season, which brings me to a cause for great thankfulness. On Sunday, in Stafford I saw the hundreds of names of men and boys on the war memorial as I stood...

Miscellaneous: Northern Ireland Budget Bill (13 Nov 2017)

Owen Smith: I join the Secretary of State in condemning the actions of the people who left a viable pipe bomb in Omagh on Remembrance Sunday—on a day and in a place designed to cause maximum harm and shock. It is truly contemptible of those people. I equally condemn the actions of the men who conducted what can only be described as a knee-capping last night in Londonderry-Derry—a city where,...

Scottish Parliament: Support for Veterans (9 Nov 2017)

Bruce Crawford: In this important week in the run-up to remembrance Sunday, I ask the First Minister to outline what support the Scottish Government provides for veterans to make the transition from military to civilian life. My constituency, Stirling, has a long and proud connection with the military and I am sure that veterans across Scotland will be interested to hear the First Minister’s response.

Temporary Accommodation: Autumn Adjournment (7 Nov 2017)

Michael Ellis: ...Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. Although it is still a few days away, I would like to be one of the first to express my congratulations from the Dispatch Box and to wish them many more happy years together. Perhaps I should close by remarking that this coming weekend is Remembrance Sunday. Members on both sides of the House will no doubt take that opportunity to commemorate the...

Opposition Day - [4TH Allotted Day]: Armed Forces Pay (1 Nov 2017)

Tobias Ellwood: ...the size and the equipment we need, and that is why we are undertaking our capability review. The hon. Members for Easington (Grahame Morris) and for Leeds North West (Alex Sobel) spoke with passion about Remembrance Sunday and the poppy appeal. It was a real honour to visit the Poppy Factory a few months ago to see the work that it is doing with veterans, and the work for Remembrance...

Armed Forces (Flexible Working) Bill [Lords] (30 Oct 2017)

Gerald Jones: ...the armed forces parliamentary scheme and his concerns about the impact of pay on morale. I think that we received an invitation to a service of private thanksgiving in Chesterfield on the Thursday after Remembrance Sunday. My hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent North (Ruth Smeeth) highlighted concerns about retention, the future accommodation model and particularly about...

Battle of Passchendaele - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: the presence of 200 descendants of those commemorated on the gate, and built on the poignant service held there every night by the Last Post Association. It provided an opportunity for reflection and remembrance beneath the memorial, which records more than 54,000 soldiers who died before 16 August 1917 and have no known grave. That was followed by a public event in the Ypres market...

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Baby Loss Awareness Week (10 Oct 2017)

Patricia Gibson: I am delighted to participate in what is now the annual debate on Baby Loss Awareness Week, although, sadly, the only reason why such a debate and such a week of remembrance are necessary is to mark the 3,500 babies stillborn each year across the UK, with one in three of those stillbirths occurring at full-term. That of course does not take into account the babies who die within a year of...

Bill Presented: Passchendaele (13 Jul 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: I am most grateful to my hon. Friend for making that point so powerfully. We all have examples in our constituencies of people who were affected by the wars, and I am sure that we are all there on Remembrance Sunday to pay our respects, no matter how long ago the deaths occurred. On 20 September 1917, there was an early morning mist and the temperature was about 66° F. The main thrust...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Jainism (25 Apr 2017)

Rob Wilson: There are no plans at present to make any changes to the representative attendance at the Remembrance Sunday Cenotaph service. The Ceremony is organised in such a way as to represent all those wishing to pay their respects and recognise all who fought and died for their country. The wreath laid by Her Majesty The Queen is done so on behalf of the whole nation, and is dedicated to all those...

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.
