EDM number 585 in 2009-10, proposed by Keith Vaz on 13/01/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Middle East.

That this House welcomes the conference to be held on 27 January 2010 on Yemen and the increased funding being provided to Yemen by the Government; believes that the Conference will help towards tackling the growing security threats within the country; is concerned, however, with the suggested diversion of Yemenia flights from Sanaa to London, causing huge inconvenience to passengers who must disembark to be security-checked in either Paris or Cairo; notes that this course of action isolates Yemen and urges the Government to send technical assistance to Sanaa so that passengers can have rigorous security scanning before boarding flights; welcomes the visit of the German Foreign Minister to Yemen; and calls on the Government to follow this example and visit Yemen to discuss security issues in the region in light of the British hostage held captive and growing terrorist activities in the region.

This motion has been signed by a total of 17 MPs.
