Israeli Settlements And Settlement Goods

EDM number 370 in 2008-09, proposed by Jeremy Corbyn on 18/12/2008.
Categorised under the topics of International law, International trade and Middle East.

That this House welcomes the statement from the Prime Minister in December that `one of the blockages' to peace `is clearly the settlement issue' and his desire to `seize the opportunity we have before us to make 2009 the Middle East year of peace'; notes that Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories are illegal under international law, and is therefore concerned that British retailers may be breaking the law by selling goods from these settlements; further notes the detrimental impact that settlements have on the daily lives of Palestinians, with over 40 per cent. of West Bank land confiscated for settlement construction; also notes that Palestinians are enduring increased violence at the hands of settlers; welcomes the Government's actions on the mislabelling of settlement produce as `Produce of Israel'; and calls upon the Government to call for the dismantling of illegal settlements and to ensure that companies in the UK are not breaking the law by selling settlement goods.

This motion has been signed by a total of 60 MPs, 3 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
