Motion text

That this House welcomes the Remembrance Day Service held at the Cenotaph in Whitehall last year where the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prime Minister and other dignitaries laid wreaths to the memory of those killed in Britain's military campaigns; further welcomes the participation of the Bevin Boys, who marched in the parade for the first time last year; and notes that the Women's Land Army were not represented in the parade down Whitehall but hopes that measures will be taken to ensure that they can march in the ceremony of remembrance in future years in order that they be officially recognised for their tremendous hard work and dedication to ensuring Britain did not starve during the war.
