Motion text

That this House remembers the tragic events known as Aktion T4 in Nazi Germany; notes that up to 300,000 people died as a result of that involuntary euthanasia programme in Nazi Germany; recognises the horror of the crime committed, namely that both children and adults were murdered purely because of their mental or physical disabilities; further recognises the value of all people, regardless of their race, ethnicity, religion, beliefs, gender and disability; condemns any abuse of individuals due to a particular characteristic that they have; and urges the Government to do more to protect people with disabilities and ensure that they are treated equally in all aspects of life.
