Cre Compact-Race Relations For Political Campaigners

EDM number 423 in 2000-01, proposed by Stephen Twigg on 12/03/2001.

That this House believes that the right to freedom of speech and public debate is essential and that it is important that issues like education, health, policing, employment, housing, the economy, asylum and immigration, and Europe are discussed fully in our democracy; recognises that it is important that the right to free political expression, especially in elections, is not abused in the competition for popular votes; believes that those seeking elected office should not cause or exploit prejudice and discrimination on grounds of race or nationality; opposes those engaged in the democratic process who seek to incite or encourage, blatantly or covertly, racial hatred, prejudice and discrimination between others; and calls upon those seeking elected office in any forthcoming election to this House to observe the Commission for Racial Equality's Compact, a document that lays down good practice and conduct for all those involved in political campaigns.

This motion has been signed by a total of 106 MPs.
