Cluster Munitions Use

EDM number 78 in 2016-17, proposed by Tom Brake on 24/05/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Defence equipment and procurement, Middle East and Military operations.

That this House notes with grave concern that, according to Amnesty International, fragments of UK-manufactured cluster munitions have been uncovered in Yemen; denounces the use of cluster munitions due to their indiscriminate and disproportionate nature; believes that any indiscriminate use of cluster munitions by Saudi Arabian forces in Yemen amounts to a grave breach of the Geneva Conventions of 1949, and is a violation of international humanitarian law; calls on the Government to suspend all arms exports to Saudi Arabia until international humanitarian law violations have been investigated and disproved; and urges the Government to call for a full independent inquiry into the use of cluster munitions in the Yemen war to establish the truth about such allegations.

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