Madeline Bell, Black Woman Of The Year

EDM number 1046 in 1993-94, proposed by George Galloway on 19/04/1994.

That this House congratulates the great Blues and Jazz singer Madeline Bell upon her achievement of being awarded The Black Woman's Achievement Award 1994 at the splendid Hackney Empire; remembers her three decades of musical excellence in Britain in the charts with Blue Mink, in musicals like `The Cotton Club', in her annual week in Ronnie Scott's Jazz Clubs in London and Birmingham, her television and radio work and not least her prolific European tours in Holland, Germany, Spain, etc which have earned revenues to the British Exchequer; in which regard this House expresses the wish that the Home Secretary will not much longer delay his consideration of Madeline Bell's application for British citizenship given her 31 years residence here, her long marriage to a British citizen, and the many services to this country, its charities and not least the Black community whose woman of the year she recently became.

This motion has been signed by a total of 36 MPs.
