Motion text

That this House joins with the people of the Channel Islands of Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney and Sark in celebrating the 64th anniversary of their liberation by British military forces from German occupation on 9 May 1945; pays a heartfelt tribute to the courageous stand for freedom taken by the Channel Islanders during their years of occupation when, despite the extreme persecution and hardship they faced, they never lost hope that their liberation would take place; and calls on 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.
