Kingsmill Massacre And The Conduct Of The Hon. Member For West Tyrone

EDM number 747 in 2017-19, proposed by Mary Glindon on 08/01/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Death, Members of Parliament and Terrorism.

That this House believes that the sectarian massacre at Kingsmill of 10 Protestant workers by the Provisional IRA on 5 January 1976 was one of the worst single atrocities of the Troubles; notes that the IRA murder gang spared a Catholic worker; is horrified that on the 42nd anniversary of the massacre, the hon. Member for West Tyrone chose to release a video of himself on social media with a loaf of Kingsmill bread balanced on his head; further believes that this offensive act brings into question his judgment and the sincerity of his commitment to non-sectarianism; and agrees with the sole survivor of the massacre and many others that it would be wise if he resigned his seat.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
