Killiecrankie Battlefield Site

EDM number 940 in 2017-19, proposed by Pete Wishart on 20/02/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Cultural heritage.

That this House believes that the UK's historic battlefield sites should be preserved and celebrated as part of national culture; recognises the importance and significance of the battlefield site at Killiecrankie and its iconic place in Scotland's history; notes that this was the first battle of the Jacobite wars in which the Jacobite forces secured a stunning victory at heavy cost, including the death of their leader, Bonnie Dundee; further notes it was the first battle in which the plug bayonet was deployed and was the first battle in which the hand grenade was used on British soil; is greatly concerned at the proposed encroachment on the battlefield site by the dualling of the A9 between Perth and Inverness; and calls on Transport Scotland to look once again at the planning of this route.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
