PMQs Badges: What are the pink and purple badges worn by MPs?

The markings are pink and purple and in the shape of a pointed oval.

Rishi Sunak has come under renewed pressure about Nadhim Zahawi for refusing to sack the leader of the Tory party despite being investigated over his tax affairs.

The prime minister ordered his ethics adviser to investigate whether Mr Zahawi has broken ministerial rules about the estimated £4.8million bill he settled with HMRC as Chancellor.

The badges are intended to commemorate World Holocaust Remembrance Day, which takes place on Friday, January 27th.

The Holocaust Remembrance Day invites you to a day of remembrance.

The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT) says: “We promote and support Holocaust Remembrance Day (HMD) – the international day on January 27 to commemorate the six million Jews who were murdered during the Holocaust, along with the millions of other people who died during the Nazi persecution of other groups and more were killed during recent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

“January 27 marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp.

“The Holocaust threatened the very fabric of civilization and the genocide still needs to be resisted on a daily basis. Our world often feels fragile and vulnerable and we cannot be complacent. Even in the UK, prejudice and hate language needs to be challenged by all of us.

“HMD is for everyone. Every year, thousands of people come together across the UK to learn about the past and take action to create a safer future. We know they learn more, empathize more and do more.” PMQs Badges: What are the pink and purple badges worn by MPs?
