Migrant Workers In Qatar And The 2022 World Cup

EDM number 1095 in 2013-14, proposed by John Mann on 24/02/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Construction industry, Employment, Middle East and Sports.

That this House notes that since Qatar won the bid to host the 2022 World Cup the country has experienced a construction boom; further notes that in the last two years hundreds of Indian and Nepalese migrant workers have died working on construction projects in Qatar; moreover is extremely concerned that in the build-up to 2022 hundreds more migrant workers will die due to unsafe working conditions; and calls on the Government, the international community and FIFA to act to urge Qatar in the strongest possible terms to drastically improve working conditions, review the migrant worker sponsorship scheme and properly compensate the families of migrant workers who have been injured or killed.

This motion has been signed by a total of 32 MPs.
