Motion text

That this House notes the continuing risks to British citizens abroad from terrorist attacks; further notes that the Government currently pays compensation to those affected by terrorism in the UK; further notes that the Government has yet to make use of powers granted by the Crime and Security Act 2010 to introduce a statutory compensation scheme for British citizens who are victims of future terrorist attacks overseas despite it being over 12 months since the legislation was passed; further notes that the Government has not fulfilled previous promises to offer retrospective compensation to existing UK victims of terror, that the Government has not fulfilled previous promises to offer retrospective compensation to existing UK victims of terror overseas, and that many countries, including the US, France, Australia and Italy make payments to their nationals who are victims of terrorism abroad; further notes that insurance companies frequently refuse to offer payments for acts of terrorism; and therefore calls on the Government to provide compensation to UK victims of terrorism overseas, so that all UK victims of terrorism are treated equally and none are left in financial hardship.
