That this House is pleased to join with the people of the Channel Islands in celebrating the 61st anniversary of their liberation from German occupation by British military forces on 9th May 1945; pays the warmest tribute to the courageous stand for freedom taken by the Channel Islanders during their years of occupation when, despite extreme persecution and hardship, they never lost hope that their liberation would take place; and calls upon the Government to continue to fulfil its historic duty to stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of the Channel Islands, guaranteeing their safety, freedom and independence for centuries to come.
