Mr. speaker yes to see an acts of terrorism. Tries to silence all democracy. But today we meet as normal as generations have done before us and his future generations will continue to do.

Against innocent men women and children. Mr. speaker this was an attack on free people at freeway. Until the halt of the British people. I would like to thank our friends and allies around the world who have made it clear that they stand with us apps this time. At approximately 2:40 PM yesterday. A single attacker drove his vehicle act speed. Enter innocent pedestrians who were crossing Westminster bridge. Getting to people and injuring around forty more.

Mr. speaker the attack then left the vehicle and approached a police officer at carriage gates attacking that's officer with a large knife. Before he was shot dead by an armed peace officer. Tragically as the house when 48 year old PC Keith Palmer who was killed. PC Palma. Had devoted his life to the service of his country. He had been a member of the parliamentary and diplomatic protection come on for fifteen years. And a soldier in the royal artillery before that. He was a husband and a Fatah.
