Iraqi Locally Employed Staff

EDM number 165 in 2007-08, proposed by Keith Vaz on 08/11/2007.
Categorised under the topics of Asylum, Employment, Iraq and Military operations.

That this House welcomes the statement by the right hon. David Miliband MP, Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, that Government support will be offered to specified locally employed staff in Iraq; recognises that many of these individuals and their families live in extreme danger; notes the obstacles and the time that it will take for some of these individuals to apply through the special refugee programme which would require them to travel to Syria or Jordan; and calls upon the Government to ensure with utmost urgency that their safety is secured and the processing of applications does not suffer from any unnecessary delays.

This motion has been signed by a total of 38 MPs.
