Motion text

That this House views with alarm the current situation in Yemen where the brutal conflict is having devastating effects on the lives of its people, with an estimated 80 per cent of its population requiring humanitarian assistance including especially its 10 million children who, according to the UN, currently are facing the highest level of food insecurity the country has ever experienced; notes that its population regularly has to cope with its hospitals being attacked, schools closed and over 25 million people displaced from their homes; believes the time has come for the Government to act to help stop the carnage taking place and for it to press for the establishment of an international independent investigation into alleged breaches of international law and suspend the sale of arms to all sides engaging in the current conflict.
