Motion text

That this House expresses its concern that the humanitarian crisis in Yemen is worsening; notes the Oxfam report which states that Yemen is a few months away from running out of food, which builds on the UN report stating that around half the population are food insecure; is alarmed that the ports so vital in maintaining the supply of food and medicines are subject to shipping restrictions and that the fuel required for the distribution of necessities is in desperately short supply; and calls on the UK Government to work with the international community to alleviate the human suffering in Yemen.
