To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to support a national memorial to recognise the work of the emergency services.
29 April 2021
It is not normal practice for central government to fund new memorials.
Many organisations – public and private – are able (subject to the relevant permissions) to propose, fund, develop and deliver memorials marking a variety of incidents and historical moments in a way that they are best-placed to deem appropriate and sensitive.
Many successful memorials are created by a wide-range of authorities and organisations and this allows each memorial to respond sensitively to the particular circumstances that it seeks to commemorate.
