Second World War Munitions Workers And The Swynnerton Roses

EDM number 308 in 2009-10, proposed by Robert Flello on 01/12/2009.
Categorised under the topics of Cultural heritage and Military operations.

That this House honours and gives thanks to the brave individuals who served in Britain's armed forces during the Second World War; acknowledges, also, the vital and often dangerous work carried out by the people who worked on the home front; welcomes efforts over recent years to give official recognition to such groups; notes with some concern the fact that munitions workers, such as those at Royal Ordnance Factory 55 Swynnerton, have received no such formal recognition; further notes that work in munitions factories was extremely dangerous and that many workers were killed or received serious injuries which continue to affect them to this day; and therefore urges the Government to formally recognise the contribution of former munitions factory workers as a matter of urgency.

This motion has been signed by a total of 47 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
