Motion text

That this House congratulates Ross Kemp, producer Jamie Welham and director Marta Shaw on their outstanding documentary, Libya's Migrant Hell, a film that exposes the harrowing reality of the journey made by hundreds of thousands of people from sub-Saharan Africa as they try to make their way to Europe via Libya; acknowledges the remarkable achievement of Mr Kemp, the production team, the crew and the local Libyan fixers in securing unprecedented film-crew access to areas of Libya regarded as off-limits, as well as to those people making the journey, the illegal people-traffickers, those running the Libyan detention camps and the Libyan coastguard; further acknowledges the personal risks taken by the production team in order to make the people of the UK fully aware of the truly awful fate faced by so many of those people who have chosen to escape their own country to try to get to Europe via Libya; and encourages all hon. Members to find the time to watch this excellent documentary and hopes that both the EU and, particularly, the Government will do everything they can to ensure that international aid reaches Libya and that they work towards urgently rebuilding the state of Libya.
