Motion text

That this House remembers with great sadness the murder of Lord Mountbatten, his grandson Nicholas, Lady Doreen Brabourne and local 15 year old Paul Maxwell and further the slaughter of 18 British Army Soldiers at an ambush at Warrenpoint on 27th of August 1979; extends our sincere sympathy to her Majesty the Queen and all of the families of those murdered on that dreadful day; points again to the necessity of the Victims pension for those who were not war criminals but innocent bystanders of war crimes perpetrated against them; and continues to assert that the truth of horrific acts of terrorism and savagery carried out by any terrorist during The Troubles will not be whitewashed by a narrative which seeks to glorify as necessary the wilful, calculated and evil murder of children, men and women in Northern Ireland.
