VOTING RECORD OF SCOTTISH HONOURABLE MEMBERS

That this House welcomes the presence in the division lobbies on 7th March of the Right honourable Member for Glasgow, Anniesland, and the honourable Member for Fife Central, to vote on an issue unconnected with Scotland; contrasts this with their zero ratings, according to the Library, for participation in any divisions in Session 1999-2000 to 31st January 2000; and encourages more Labour rebellions on such measures as the Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) (No. 2) Bill, in order to improve the dismal voting records of Scottish honourable Members.

NATIONAL FLEET AIR ARM MEMORIAL

[This Motion was supported by 137 Members of Parliament.]

That this House welcomes the proposed national Fleet Air Arm Memorial in honour of more than 6,000 men and women who gave their lives in service with the Royal Naval Air Service and the Fleet Air Arm from 1914 to 1918 and since 1938, respectively; acknowledges the vital role played by naval aviation in defence of freedom during the 20th century; recalls the 40 battle honours won in two world wars and in subsequent campaigns, including Korea, Borneo, the Falklands, the Gulf and the Adriatic; and believes that the unveiling of the Memorial in June 2000, in Victoria Embankment Gardens outside the Ministry of Defence, will be a fitting tribute to those who have died and an inspiration to future generations.
