The North Korean People

Volume 507: debated on Thursday 11 March 2010

The Petition of Mr. Martin Burke of Elizabeth Regina Love,

Declares that during the 2006 North Korea nuclear crisis in a United Nations Security Council meeting the United States’ ambassador to the United Nations Ambassador Bolton pointed out that North Koreans have below average height compared to their neighbours in South Korea, and further declares that that the petitioner quickly pursued the point of food relief, as well as and hopefully instead of sanctions, together with other points in his communications in October and November 2006. Notes and regrets that the 6 party talks have not lead yet to a successful outcome.

Declares that the welfare of the North Korean people is still a concern and as a mark of that concern requests that the House receive regular reports on the welfare of the North Korean people.

The petitioner requests that the House of Commons bear in mind in its law making the above, and that were the question put the House consent to the request(s) in this Mr. Burke’s 16th petition first posted to the House on 29 December 2009.

And the Petitioner remains, etc.
