EDM 474 – 11 January 2005

MR HARRY ERRINGTON GC AND WARTIME FIREFIGHTERS

[This Motion was supported by 72 Members of Parliament.]

That this House salutes the passing of Harry Errington, the British-born son of Polish immigrants, who won the George Cross at the height of the London Blitz when, as a volunteer firefighter, he saved the lives of two trapped comrades in circumstances of great danger; recalls the sacrifice of over 300 firefighters who lost their lives in the London region alone; and pays tribute to all who manned the emergency services throughout countless attacks upon the United Kingdom during the Second World War.

EDM 188 – 25 November 2004

DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE CHANCELLOR OF THE DUCHY OF LANCASTER

[This EDM was tabled jointly with Shadow Constitutional Affairs Secretary Oliver Heald. It was supported by 91 Members of Parliament.]

That this House notes that the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster has completed just eight minutes at the Dispatch Box since his appointment in September; also notes that the Minister for the Cabinet Office has declined to reveal the sum earmarked by her Department to cover the cost of creating a separate Chancellor of the Duchy; further notes that previous holders of the post primarily engaged in election campaigning have not been paid a full Cabinet Minister's salary; and accordingly regrets the departure from precedent in the case of the Right Honourable Member for Darlington.
