Motion text

That this House marks the 25th Anniversary of Operation Desert Storm/Granby to liberate Kuwait from occupation by Saddam Hussein's forces; recognises that the effort was based on a coalition of 34 countries; salutes the nearly 50,000 Britons who served in the successful operation and the 47 Britons who made the ultimate sacrifice; and supports plans to build a memorial in Washington DC to an often overlooked military operation that will itself be a place where the contributions, sacrifice and loss by all coalition countries, including those of the UK, can be remembered in perpetuity.
