Motion text

That this House notes the meeting between the UK Prime Minister and Libyan Prime Minister on Thursday 24th June 2021; recognises the continuing reprehensible situation affecting those innocent victims of Libyan IRA supplied semtex here in the UK, which resulted in many deaths and injuries, whereby no compensation has been paid despite repeated assurances by successive Governments that the matter is not closed; acknowledges that victims in other jurisdictions have received compensation; and calls for the campaign to be intensified as demanded by a range of innocent victims groups and various elected representatives including the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee in Parliament, and every avenue be actively pursued until final resolution is achieved, including HMRC flexibility regarding UK based profits on frozen Libyan assets.
