Humanitarian Situation In Somalia

EDM number 1883 in 2007-08, proposed by Bob Spink on 25/06/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Africa, Human rights and International politics and government.

That this House is deeply concerned by the developing humanitarian crisis in Somalia arising from civil war, political instability and catastrophic climate failures which have led to famine and drought; notes that the number of people desperately in need of help may rise to three million and that children under five years old are worst affected by these conditions and are suffering terrible consequences; and therefore calls on the Government to work with other African countries, non-governmental organisations and the international community and, particularly, to use bilateral aid to get humanitarian aid to the people of Somalia.

This motion has been signed by a total of 40 MPs.
