Posthumous Certificate of Honour


Alderman M Hamilton Moved, Seconded by Alderman Hussey

That    this Council recognises and acknowledges the hurt caused to innocent victims of terrorist violence by the Mayor of San Francisco's decision to present a posthumous 'Certificate of Honour' to Martin McGuinness and urges Mayor Breed to review her citation with particular regard to the wording 'courageous service in the military' and to rescind the award.


                        After voting by a show of hands the result was as follows:

                        For – 6; Against – 22; Abstentions – 0; therefore the Motion fell.
