Volume 486: debated on Wednesday 21 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has received on commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Kindertransport since July 2008; and if he will make a statement. (247760)

We are not aware of any representations to my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary since July 2008 on the 70th anniversary of the Kindertransport. However, we welcome the commemoration of this event and others of this kind to ensure that we never forget the horrors of Nazi occupation and the holocaust. It is also important to celebrate the humanitarian acts that saved lives and helped refugees to start anew.
