Original Motion Text
That this House is deeply concerned at the prospect of war with Iran; is appalled at the naval military build-up in the Persian Gulf and the danger that this may spark a conflict with enormous consequences and loss of life; calls for renewed dialogue with Iran, an end to overt and covert military threats and support for a nuclear-free Middle East as called for by the 2010 Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference; and welcomes the Stop the War demonstration outside the US Embassy on 28 January 2012 as an opportunity for ordinary people to express their thirst for peace.
