Volume 684: debated on Monday 24 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What plans they have to commemorate the military personnel and police who died in (a) the 1916 Easter rebellion in Ireland; (b) the 1919-21 war of independence in Ireland; and (c) the 1921-22 civil disturbances in Northern Ireland.[HL6541]

We have no plans to do so.

The national service of remembrance at the Cenotaph is an expression of remembrance and a commemoration of all those killed and injured in service of their country, and all those who mourn them.
