Qatar Blockade And Effect On Human Rights

EDM number 600 in 2017-19, proposed by Grahame Morris on 28/11/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Human rights, International politics and government, International trade and Middle East.

That this House notes with concern the continuation of the blockade on Qatar; is concerned by the blockade's impact on the human rights of Qatari residents and citizens, with many facing issues of family separation, restrictions on rights to education and religious pilgrimage and restrictions to personal finances and freedom of the press; is further concerned at the lack of progress towards a détente between Qatar and the quartet; supports the Kuwaiti mediation and calls on the Government to urge further progress towards a negotiated settlement; and urges the Government to call on the quartet to lift the blockade on Qatar and ease current restrictions on the personal rights of residents and citizens.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
