Motion text

That this House recognises the hugely positive contribution made by nationals of other countries, including other EU countries, to the UK's economy, society, communities and families; condemns the xenophobia, racism and hostility that many are encountering; believes that political discourse and rhetoric both during, and for many years prior to, the EU referendum has been a factor in legitimising and emboldening such xenophobia; calls on political parties to work together to combat xenophobia in all possible ways; and further calls for migration policy and debates to be based on evidence and honesty, rather than political expediency.
