Turkish Application For Eu Customs Union

EDM number 1391 in 1994-95, proposed by Alan Meale on 12/07/1995.

That this House condemns the Turkish Government's decision to launch fresh raids by its armed forces into Northern Iraq against the Kurds; notes that Turkey has repeatedly undertaken such actions over the past few months despite angry criticism from most of the western world; reminds the Government that Turkey has applied for the approval of its application for a customs union with the European Union, a decision which the European Parliament has insisted should only receive ratification if Turkey shows greater respect for human rights in its country and better treatment for its large Kurdish minority; and calls upon Her Majesty's Government to vote against such an arrangement until such time as the Turkish Government meets the criteria laid down by the European Parliament.

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