Daesh: Genocide of Minorities Hansard Report 2016

Posted on May 10, 2016 in Blog


Reading the unusually moving Parliamentary debate on 20th April 2016 where the House of Commons unanimously voted, 278 to 0, to declare “Daesh” or Islamic State’s actions in Iraq and Syria against the Yazidi, Christians and others genocide. Shame on the Foreign Office that sought to direct ministers to abstain. Shame on those MPs not there. Well done, Fiona
Bruce MP for Congleton, for leading the debate.
