UK Arms Sales To Saudi Arabia

EDM number 665 in 2015-16, proposed by Margaret Ferrier on 05/11/2015.
Categorised under the topics of Defence equipment and procurement and Middle East.

That this House believes that Saudi Arabia is ruled by one of the most repressive regimes in the world which does not allow freedom of expression or association; notes with concern the systematic human rights abuses that occur within Saudi Arabia, including the extensive use of the death penalty, the sentencing to death of individuals arrested as juveniles, the flogging of those who question the ruling regime, the lack of basic rights for women and immigrant workers, the repression of homosexuals and those who do not adhere to the state religion; views with alarm the actions of the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen with the increasing number of civilian casualties and people displaced from their homes; further notes that the UK is a major supplier of military equipment to Saudi Arabia, and that such sales are given UK official and military support; and calls on the Government to end all military exports to, and military collaboration with Saudi Arabia.

This motion has been signed by a total of 33 MPs.
