Tabled 23 May 2016
2016-17 Session
That this House recognises the long-term unresolved problem of toxic contamination of war zones, especially in Iraq; notes research on this problem recently presented by Dr Mozhgan Savabieasfahani to the University of Stavanger; is concerned about the lead pollution from burn-pits on US bases and from use of munitions and bullets; further notes the resolution agreed by the American Public Health Association in November 2015 that parties involved in military activities abroad have a post-conflict responsibility to clean up and decontaminate polluted areas; and calls on the Government to work with the US to take the necessary action to clean up areas polluted by the allied military forces and assist current generations in Iraq with remedial healthcare.
