Motion text

That this House believes that humanitarian mine action, embracing measures of disciplined clearance of landmines and unexploded ordnance, support and rehabilitation for victims allied to freely accessible seminars on mine awareness and guidance on related advocacy for afflicted communities, is a vital element of any effective programme of development aid; notes that such a programme will save lives, promote peace, and rebuild communities, reduce poverty and enhance welfare by removing restrictions on access to arable land and other natural and mineral resources; and therefore calls upon Her Majesty's Government to improve both the level and the consistency of long-term funding made available to reliable British charities seeking to respond to the needs of communities so afflicted throughout the world.
