PMQs: Why are MPs wearing white flowers today?

Date:


Boris Johnson will be leading PMQs for the Conservatives once again on Wednesday, despite a leadership contest already underway. MPs on both sides of the House chose to use the opportunity to raise awareness for charity Remembering Srebrenica.

The Prime Minister was answering MPs’ questions with a new-look front bench.

Seven days ago, Cabinet Secretaries Sajid Javid and Rishi Sunak announced their resignation, sparking a whole host of government changes.

During the session on Wednesday afternoon, MPs could be seen wearing white flowers.

The lapel is a representation of charity Remembering Srebrenica; an organisation that raises awareness of the Bosnian muslim genocide in Srebrenica.

The charity is part-funded by the UK Government, and aims to tackle hatred around the world.

The 1995 Bosnian genocide include the killing of more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys.

The Serbs’ ‘ethnic cleansing’ included extermination, unlawful confinement, sexual assault, torture, and destruction of private property.

In 2005, it was agreed that Serbian policies amounted to genocide.
