Parliament Pauses to Mark Remembrance Day

THE House of Commons fell silent for two minutes today - as MPs joined the country to honour those who have lost their lives in conflict around the world.

In Stalybridge and Hyde - as across the country - people took to the streets or paused in shops and offices to stand in respect.

And on Sunday Jonathan Reynolds will join constituents to take part in Acts of Remembrance in Mottram, Hyde and Werneth Low.

Mr Reynolds, who is Secretary of the All Party Parliamentary Group for the Armed Forces, said: "Our armed forces show extraordinary acts of courage and commitment in the service of their country.

"And on Remembrance Day we pay tribute to their service and remember the ultimate sacrifices that have been made.  

"Of course we continue to remember the bravery and sacrifice shown during the two World Wars that have ensured that we are able to enjoy the democracy and peace that we do today.

"But we also remember those who are continuing to serve today, bringing freedoms that we take for granted to some of the most troubled parts of the world.

"Sadly, the people of Hyde and Stalybridge know only too well the risks that are faced by our soldiers. And on Sunday we will join together as a community at cenotaphs around Stalybridge and Hyde to show our respect for those who have fallen in conflicts around the world."
