Motion text

That this House condemns the targeting of Central and Eastern European nationals resident in the Netherlands by the far-right Freedom Party (PVV); notes that the PVV website asks Dutch nationals: `Do you have problems with people from Central and Eastern Europe? Have you lost your job to a Pole, Romanian or other Eastern European? We want to know', and asks them to choose problems including drunkenness, double parking and noise pollution that they associate with Eastern Europeans; further notes that the PVV supports the minority government of Mark Rutte, who has remained silent on the issue; and calls on the Dutch Prime Minister to disassociate the Dutch government from the PVV campaign and demand the website is discontinued.
