Iraqi Government Economic Blockade Of Kurdistan

EDM number 601 in 1991-92, proposed by DN Campbell-Savours on 03/02/1992.

That this House notes that the Iraqi Government's blockade of Kurdistan is causing acute shortage of food and fuel throughout Kurdistan; notes that government allocations of food were cut to one third of pledged amounts in December and that no food at all has been delivered to Sulaymaniyah province in January; notes that the fuel shortage has now become critical, with the lack of kerosene for heating leading to illnesses and deaths amongst refugees, who now face winter temperatures regularly below -15oC; notes that, in spite of United Nations Security Council Resolution 688, calling for the end to repression in Iraq that there are frequent attacks along the front; and calls on the United nations to counter the blockade and take all steps necessary to ensure that humanitarian supplies urgently reach those in need.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
