Ban On Broadcasts By Sinn Fein

EDM number 323 in 1993-94, proposed by Tony Benn on 11/01/1994.

That this House warmly welcomes the decision announced by the Irish Government that it will not seek the renewal of the ban on broadcasts by members of Sinn Fein in the Republic; believes that this decision will play a significant part in improving the prospects for peace in ireland; and calls upon Her Majesty's Government to lift the ban which it imposed in the United Kingdom, which undermines civil liberties and weakens the democratic process, which depends upon freedom of access for all citizens to a full range of news and opinion through the broadcasting media.

This motion has been signed by a total of 38 MPs, 2 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
