Political Discrimination In Germany

EDM number 2131 in 1992-93, proposed by Bob Cryer on 09/06/1993.

That this House notes with deep concern that Berufsverbote in the former German Democratic Republic has led to the arbitrary sacking of 40,000 teachers out of a total of 170,000 which has in turn resulted in class sizes rising from 22 to over 30; welcomes the recent visit to the House of Commons by Margitta Hollich, Head Teacher of a comprehensive school in Leipzig, dismissed in 1992 for being 'close to the system', but who successfully appealed to the Leipzig Labour Court, and who now faces a vindictive appeal to the Saxony Labour Court; recognises that this political vendetta bodes ill for the democratic well-being of Germany; and wishes Margitta Hollich well in her courageous struggle for justice.

This motion has been signed by a total of 46 MPs.
