That this House defends the rights of democratic parliaments to debate and pass political positions about any point proposed by the legitimate representatives of its citizens; notes that 85 per cent of Catalonia's citizens support the option to vote democratically on Catalonia's constitutional future, as well as 83 of the 135 Members of the Parliament of Catalonia; condemns the sentences handed to Catalan Leader, Artur Mas and other Catalonian officials, for organising an independence referendum, fining them heavily and banning them from holding public office; and calls on the Government to declare its adherence to freedom of expression and the right of democratically elected parliamentarians to hold referenda consistent with the needs and wishes of their people and in their own good time.

This motion has been signed by a total of 13 MPs.
