Scots Troops In The Gulf And The Press

EDM number 370 in 1990-91, proposed by David Marshall on 29/01/1991.

That this House notes with surprise the front page of the Scottish Daily Record of Tuesday 29th January claiming that no Scottish newspaper representatives are being allowed anywhere near to Scottish troops in the Gulf; further notes that 40 per cent of British troops in the Gulf are Scots and that their families are desperate for news about them; and calls for an immediate end to this absurd and ridiculous situation.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
