Motion text

That this House notes with concern reports from the International Red Cross that ongoing fighting between Tamil and government forces in Sri Lanka continues to leave a trail of civilian casualties in its wake while depriving access to substantive medical care and hope of evacuation away from areas of conflict; calls on the Sri Lankan government and Tamil forces to work towards a ceasefire to protect the civilian population from further harm as a result of this conflict; and urges the UK Government to work with international partners to do all in its powers to enable full access to humanitarian assistance for the people of Sri Lanka while continuing with exhaustive efforts to achieve a durable ceasefire that will minimise human suffering in that country.
