Xenophobia And Political Discourse

EDM number 246 in 2016-17, proposed by Stuart McDonald on 27/06/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Asylum, Immigration, Nationality and Racial discrimination.

That this House recognises the hugely positive contribution made by nationals of other countries, including other EU countries, to the UK's economy, society, communities and families; condemns the xenophobia, racism and hostility that many are encountering; believes that political discourse and rhetoric both during, and for many years prior to, the EU referendum has been a factor in legitimising and emboldening such xenophobia; calls on political parties to work together to combat xenophobia in all possible ways; and further calls for migration policy and debates to be based on evidence and honesty, rather than political expediency.

This motion has been signed by a total of 43 MPs.
