Verbatim reports

The President made a statement about the murder on 16 October 2020, in Conflans Sainte-Honorine (France), of Samuel Paty, a history and geography teacher, by an Islamist terrorist.

He spoke of the vital role played by education in combating terror, and paid tribute to Samuel Paty's family and friends, and all teachers everywhere, whether in France or elsewhere.

Parliament observed a minute's silence in homage to Samuel Paty, to all the victims of terrorism and all those who fight it daily through their work, their commitment and their example.
