Victims Of Ira Libyan Semtex

EDM number 87 in 2016-17, proposed by Andrew Rosindell on 24/05/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Africa, Middle East and Terrorism.

That this House believes that it is the first duty of government to protect and promote the interest and well-being of its citizens, and therefore records its dismay at the failure of successive UK administrations to protect and promote the interests of the innocent victims of IRA/Libyan Semtex, their dependents and their loved ones; notes that in addition to those who lost their lives, the victims who survived still bear the physical and emotional scars of their suffering; recalls that these atrocities occurred not just in Northern Ireland but throughout the UK and beyond; considers that the attention of both the media and public needs to be drawn to the fact that the US government sensibly persuaded Libya to compensate the number of American victims of the same atrocities whilst the Government failed to do so; calls on the Government now to remedy that wrong by taking the initiative with their interlocutors in Libya, the US and the EU by demanding that any recognition of and support to any new Libyan government will be dependent on a compensatory package being agreed in respect of the UK victims; and further resolves that the assets of the Qadhafi regime and those of the Muainmar Qadhafi shall remain frozen until such time as an amicable settlement has been agreed.

This motion has been signed by a total of 17 MPs.
