Motion text

That this House is deeply concerned by the conduct of Ministry of Defence officials and Ministers not engaging with the community of Nesscliffe in Shropshire and surrounding villages over the use of an Army camp to house a significant number of Afghan refugees; believes that the wall of silence from the Ministry of Defence towards the local councillor and parish councils is unacceptable; and urges that a senior representative of the Ministry of Defence or a Minister be appointed to engage with the community of Nesscliffe as a matter of urgency and that a public meeting is held in the village hall with Ministry of Defence officials so that local residents are afforded the opportunity to raise concerns and questions.
