Categorised under the topics of Armed forces and Western Europe.

That this House recognises the courage of all those who served in the International Brigades defending Spanish democracy during 1936 to 1938; welcomes the memorial to be unveiled on 14 December 2011 honouring those from the City and County of Swansea who served in Spain; welcomes too that the memorial recognises the Swansea seafarers led by Potato Jones who broke the Franco blockade; and pays tribute to all those who helped establish refugee homes across Britain, including in Swansea, to embrace and sustain the Basque children who fled the bombing of their towns and villages, including Guernica.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs.
