Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, Sri Lanka

Volume 570: debated on Tuesday 12 November 2013

With your permission, Madam Deputy Speaker, and on behalf of my constituents Sam Morris and Mr T. Murugadas and 357 other residents of Ealing North, I wish to present a petition concerning the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting due to be held next week in Sri Lanka.

The petition states:

The Humble Petition of residents of the Ealing North Constituency,

Sheweth,

That the island of Sri Lanka is still experiencing the after effects of the recent war.

Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your Honourable House formally state their opinion that this country should not be represented at the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting while so many issues are unresolved and so many people are still displaced as a result of this conflict.

And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray, &c.
