Motion text

That this House congratulates Nic Outterside, chief reporter of the Galloway Gazette, for his special award of the year 'for his investigative journalism and individual tenacity', and Angus Macleod of the Sunday Mail, for his 'talent for disclosing stories in an aggressive and attacking writing style' in winning the journalist and reporter of the year award in the Scottish Press Awards made on 26th April; notes that both reporters revealed the hidden dangers of depleted uranium shell tests at Ministry of Defence test ranges, and unveiled the links between vapourised depleted uranium dust and the Gulf War or Desert Storm syndrome; believes these Scottish reporters have properly publicised a problem of national and international importance as recognised by investigations in the United States Congress and the United Nations Compensation Committee; and reiterates its call for an urgent public inquiry called for by the honourable Member for Newport West's Early Day Motion, Number 2217, of 24th June 1993.
