War Grave Recognition HMT Lancastria

EDM number 63 in 2015-16, proposed by Douglas Chapman on 02/06/2015.
Categorised under the topics of Burial and cremation, Military operations, Shipping and Veterans.

That this House expresses its full and sincere support for those campaigners and family members whose loved ones died on 17 June 1940 when the troopship HMT Lancastria was sunk off the coast of France with the loss of an estimated 4,000 souls; further supports their efforts to have the Lancastria designated as an official war grave and encourages the Government to commit to further discussions with the government of France to allow the last resting place of the Lancastria achieve this recognition; and requests, in addition, and to relieve the families on-going distress of not knowing how their loved ones died, that all the documentary evidence, much of which was suppressed at the time of the tragedy, is placed in the public domain without further delay.

This motion has been signed by a total of 39 MPs.
