New Iraq motion tabled in Commons

Alan Simpson MP tabled the following early day motion a couple of days ago
in the House of Commons.  It currently has twenty signatures.  An EDM is
not debated, but stays on the agenda papers of the House of Commons for as
long as new signatures keep being added. It can be viewed on

That this House regrets that British and American forces continue to fire
over 100 missiles a month at targets inside Iraq and have done so
throughout the whole of the last year; questions the moral and military
value of this approach and of the 4.5 million per month which it
costs the United Kingdom to pursue it; and urges the Government to end
the bombing, lift the sanctions and re-direct expenditure towards
the tragedy of child mortality in Iraq which has doubled in the nine
years since sanctions were imposed.
