Channel Island Of Sark

EDM number 2843 in 2005-06, proposed by Andrew Rosindell on 24/10/2006.

That this House recognises the important and historical steps taken by the people of the Channel Island of Sark to self determination, having recently voted, in a public referendum, to replace the feudal system that has existed for over 450 years in favour of democratic elections and reform; commends the decision of the island's inhabitants to embrace democracy whilst maintaining the deep rooted, traditional and culturally rich heritage that has survived since Elizabeth I; acknowledges that Her Majesty The Queen, who derives Her sovereignty of the islands as the successor to the Dukes of Normandy, is still the welcome and unequivocal Sovereign and Head of State; welcomes the efforts being made to develop free and fair elections demonstrated by the soon to be elected office of the Chief Pleas; and trusts that the Lord Chancellor, in his responsibility for ensuring the welfare of the people of Sark, will pledge the wholehearted support and assistance of the United Kingdom to the island during this transitional period to a modern and democratic society.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
