Motion text

That this House notes the vital role played by the Peshmerga in protecting the Kurdistan region in Iraq and in helping to liberate Mosul in due course, as has often been recognised by Ministers and the public; further notes that many thousands of Peshmerga have paid with their lives or suffered often horrific injuries in a fight which is vital to the UK's national interests; agrees with the recent report of the All Party Parliamentary Group on the Kurdistan Region in Iraq that deaths from treatable wounds can be reduced by providing mobile medical units, as well as the continued and increased transfer of expertise in demining, and that seriously wounded Peshmerga could recuperate in British hospitals; and urges the Government to discuss with the Kurdistan Regional Government how the UK can provide frontline medical facilities such as a field hospital or field surgical teams, as well as emulating the example of Germany and France in facilitating treatment for a few hundred injured Peshmerga at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham and elsewhere.
