Aid For The Chernobyl Children

EDM number 1076 in 1989-90, proposed by Joyce Quin on 06/06/1990.

That this House applauds the proposed attempt by Brian Stuart (Tyne and Wear Fire Brigade) and his brother Dave Stuart (Lothian and Borders Fire Brigade) to ride by motorcycle to Moscow and back commencing 4th July 1990, to raise money for the children of the fire-fighters killed at Chernobyl; looks upon this humanitarian gesture, in keeping with cameraderie of fire-fighters nationally and internationally, as a unique way of achieving links between British and Soviet workers at a time of historic change in the USSR; and calls upon Her Majesty's Government to at least match the charitable donations raised by the endeavours of the Stuart brothers, as an expression of international solidarity with suffering peoples, and especially children.

This motion has been signed by a total of 35 MPs.
