Motion text

That this House acknowledges the work of local authorities, including East Renfrewshire Council and many other organisations and individuals to mark Merchant Navy Day on 3 September 2015; recognises the valuable role played by the Merchant Navy in peacetime and in times of conflict and the dangers they faced; and considers it appropriate that the families of merchant mariners who saw service north of the Arctic Circle between 3 September 1939 and 8 May 1945 and who perished during the war or have since passed away, can posthumously claim the Arctic Star to mark that service.
