Sir James Martin And The Ejector Seat

EDM number 1572 in 2017-19, proposed by Jim Shannon on 04/09/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Cultural heritage.

That this House notes the phenomenal invention by County Down man Sir James Martin which was tested in 1946 and resulted in the world's first ejector seat that has saved thousands of lives world-wide; notes that a statue of the inventor has been unveiled at the Higher Denham Headquarters near to Heathrow; recalls that this man was known to have a gentle and giving spirit and believes it is right that he is remembered in his community of Crossgar; and supports calls for Newry, Mourne and Down District Council to erect a fitting tribute in Crossgar to the memory of this wonderful gentleman whose innovation has saved so many lives.

This motion has been signed by a total of 17 MPs.
