Commonwealth War Graves Commission - Severe Weather Damage

EDM number 1089 in 2013-14, proposed by Alan Meale on 12/02/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Armed forces, Burial and cremation, Cultural heritage and Flooding.

That this House is aware of the sterling work done by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission; notes that the recent inclement weather has had a devastating effect on Britain's communities with many areas damaged by severe flooding and high winds; reminds Ministers that 2014 marks the centenary of the start of the First World War and 75 years since the beginning of the Second World War, which has already placed major burdens on this organisation and its task to look after the many graves in its care throughout both the UK and other parts of the Commonwealth; and requests that the Government responds urgently and positively to this body's needs which are likely to be immense considering the weather damage done.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
