MPs took part in a general debate in the House of Commons on Thursday 26 June 2014 on the programme of commemoration for the First World War.
The motion for debate was moved by Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Defence, Dr Andrew Murrison. Shadow Justice Minister Dan Jarvis MP opened the debate on behalf of the Opposition.
A general debate is held under a motion that the House has considered the subject. A motion expressed in neutral terms like this cannot be amended. It would be very unusual for a vote to take place on such a motion.
