That this House is concerned about the abuses and threats faced by elephants in India and South-East Asia; notes that these animals are highly endangered; is disturbed that elephants are snatched from the wild to supply animals for tourist events and festivals; notes that to prepare them for use in tourist attractions and festivals baby and juvenile elephants are beaten, isolated and deprived of food and water to break their spirits and subdue them; further notes that Asian elephants are subject to ivory poaching and illegal trafficking; respectfully calls on the Indian and South-East Asian governments to take immediate measures to bring such ill-treatment to an end; and calls on United Kingdom tourists not to support any attractions that involve captive elephants.

That this House pays tribute to the highly valuable and effective research and development (R&D) work into innovative global health goods carried out by public-private partnerships such as the European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership, the International AIDS Vaccine Alliance and the TB Alliance; highlights the important work these partnerships have done to accelerate the development of new or improved treatments, vaccines, microbicides, formulations and diagnostics against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria with a focus on efficacy and implementation in affected regions such as sub-Saharan Africa; recognises that this work meets an urgent demand not currently met by market-based models of medical R&D and allows the integration and co-ordination of international research and the development of long-term medical research capacity in developing countries; and calls on the Government to maintain and employ its position as a leading funder of such partnerships to encourage increased contributions from other donor countries and private sector partners, particularly European Union member states.

That this House is aware of the outstanding role being played by members of Britain's armed forces, in particular soldiers from the Royal Army Medical Corps operating in Sierra Leone as part of the UK's response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, who are helping train local people to tackle this terrifying disease; and notes that so far their missions have managed to build a treatment facility in Kerry Town involving hundreds of tonnes of equipment, provided vehicles to move patients and staff around the affected areas, established a facility medical centre housing blood banks, plasma freezers, centrifuges and safety handling uniforms and also engaged military staff to act with medical experts to help fight the outbreak.

That this House notes that there were 765 deaths involving heroin or morphine in 2013, a sharp rise of 32 per cent from 579 deaths in 2012; further notes that many of these fatalities could have been prevented by the use of naloxone as an intervention; recognises that naloxone is a safe and effective medicine which can reverse the effects of opioid overdoses; recalls that in May 2012 the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) recommended that naloxone should be made more widely available; is concerned that regulations to give effect to the ACMD recommendations in England are not planned to be implemented until October 2015; further notes that in Scotland and Wales successful pilots have resulted in national programmes to make naloxone widely available but there has been no such development in England; and calls on the Government to prioritise the roll-out of naloxone across the whole of the UK.

That this House recognises the enormous contribution by members of HM Armed Services from each of the British Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies in wars and conflicts over the centuries, fighting for Queen, King and country and especially this year in the 100th Anniversary of the First World War; remembers the contribution they made between 1914 and 1918; believes that the sacrifices of all these brave men and women should now be fully acknowledged in the same way as members of the Commonwealth of Nations, by inviting representatives from the Overseas Territories of Ascension Island, Anguilla, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, Montserrat, Pitcairn Islands, St Helena, Tristan da Cunha, Turks and Caicos Islands, the Sovereign Base Areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia, British Antarctic Territory, British Indian Ocean Territory, South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands and the Crown Dependencies of Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and the Isle of Man to lay a wreath in their own right at the annual Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph each year on Remembrance Sunday; and calls on the Government to ensure that the appropriate arrangements for this to happen are in place in time for Remembrance Sunday on 9 November 2014.

Mrs Mary Glindon

That this House notes that there are estimated to be one million houses in multiple occupation (HMO) units in England housing some of the UK's most vulnerable citizens; further notes that according to the Department for Communities and Local Government, HMOs are frequently 'old and highly inefficient in terms of energy use' and that a recent report for the EAGA Charitable Trust, Housing in Multiple Occupancy: Energy Issues and Policy, has found that problems with damp, mould and associated health concerns are frequent for those living in HMOs; regrets that there are currently no legislative drivers to improve the energy efficiency of HMOs and the lives of their residents; further notes with interest that Bath and North East Somerset Council requires HMOs to reach energy performance certificate band E as a condition of licensing under the Housing Act 2004; therefore supports the Houses in Multiple Occupation (Energy Performance Certificates and Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards) Bill introduced on 21 July 2014 by the hon. Member for Southampton Test, which will bring HMOs within the scope of the minimum energy efficiency standard for the private rented sector under the Energy Act 2011 and build on the example set by Bath and North East Somerset Council by requiring all local housing authorities to make a minimum energy efficiency standard a mandatory condition of HMO licensing; and urges the Government to introduce these legislative changes as soon as possible.

Andrew George Liz McInnes Mrs Mary Glindon

That this House congratulates the Trades Union Congress for passing a motion, proposed by the Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union, committing itself to campaign for an increase in the National Minimum Wage to £10 per hour; notes that this would ease the burden on welfare spending by alleviating the need for in work benefits which subsidise exploitative employers paying poverty wages; further notes that this would free up funds for much-needed investment in the NHS, education and other welfare programmes; believes that action is needed to address the scandal that apprentices can be legally paid as little as £2.73 per hour and under-18s just £3.79 per hour; and considers that employers who claim to be unable to afford £10 per hour should be required to submit to an audit of their company profits, bonuses paid to senior executives and dividends paid to shareholders to ensure they are not out of line with employee rates of pay.

That this House celebrates British Pub Week from 31 October to 8 November 2014; notes that the 48,000 pubs across the UK are often the heart of their communities, acting as community hubs, giving a place for community groups and sports teams, and also contribute significantly to charity; further notes many of them also run vital public services such as post offices, broadband and local shops; acknowledges pubs as being a key part of British history, heritage and culture; further acknowledges that beer and pubs contribute £22 billion to the economy, bring in £11 billion in tax revenue and support 900,000 jobs; commends hardworking publicans who keep the UK's pubs running and maintain safe, vibrant environments in which to drink, eat and socialise; expresses concern that on average 31 pubs a week are closing across the country; further expresses a desire to see a reversal of this trend and for government to take the necessary steps to support this; and wishes British pubs every success for years to come.

That this House condemns the persecution of Christians, Bahá'ís and other religious minorities in the Islamic Republic of Iran which has increased under the leadership of President Rouhani and calls on the Iranian government to release prisoners incarcerated on account of their faith such as Farshid Fathi, Benham Irani, Alireza Seyyedian, Homayoun Shokouhi, Vahid Hakkani, Mojtaba Seyyed Alaedin Hossein, Abdolreza Ali Haghnejad, Silas Rabbani, Shahin Lahooti, Suroush Saraie, Ebrahim Firouzi, Maryam Naghash Zargaran and Rasoul Abdollahi; is concerned by Iran's refusal to allow entry to a delegation of UK parliamentarians to open positive and respectful dialogue on these matters; notes the recent comments of President Rouhani's Advisor on Religious Affairs that underlined the illegality of religious conversion in Iran which sits contrary to Iran's obligations under international law; urges the UK and the 46 other member states of the UN Human Rights Council, to raise the cases of individual Christian prisoners of conscience during Iran's Universal Periodic Review on 31 October 2014, and to recommend their release; and further urges Ministers to recognises the significance the UK population places on putting human rights and religious liberty at the heart of the UK's international relations, noting the Iranian government's eagerness to see its embassy reopened in London.

Mr Nigel Evans

Sir Richard Shepherd
Sir Peter Bottomley
Mark Durkan
*23
Kate Hoey Liz McInnes Mrs Mary Glindon Mr Mike Hancock

That this House believes that the UK's air passenger duty is acting as a barrier to allowing hardworking families to take holidays abroad, when the majority already have to pay a premium due to school term-time restrictions; and calls on the Government to reduce the financial impact on hardworking families by scrapping the air passenger duty applicable to children.

456 CLOSURE OF AL-AQSA MOSQUE 3:11:14
Mr George Galloway
Sir Alan Meale
Mr Ronnie Campbell
Mr David Anderson
Martin Caton
Mrs Mary Glindon
*7
Mr Mike Hancock

That this House condemns the closure of Haram al-Sharif and the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem by Israeli authorities in yet another attack on Palestinians and Arabs; considers this action to be totally unjustified and highly provocative; believes that the move has nothing to do with security but amounts to further persecution of Palestinians and Arabs wishing to pray at the holy site; notes that Israel continues to press ahead with its illegal settlement programme and will build 1,000 Jewish-only housing units in occupied East Jerusalem, in flagrant breach of United Nations' resolutions and criticism by its biggest supporter and contributor, the US; is convinced that these actions clearly demonstrate that Israel has no interest in a peaceful and negotiated settlement; and urges the Government to protest in the strongest terms to its counterpart in Israel and to convey its support to the Palestinian authorities.

That this House notes with concern the huge human and financial cost of occupational cancers, with an estimated 8,000 lives lost and around 13,500 new cases registered each year in Britain and a national economic cost the Health and Safety Executive puts at double-figure billions annually; further notes the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health's No Time to Lose campaign, which seeks to raise awareness of this significant health issue, suggests solutions to tackle the problem and helps businesses to deliver effective prevention programmes; and calls on the Government to support proactive regulator activity in this area, more research and the creation of a national carcinogen exposure database.

Mr David Anderson
Mr John Leech

Mr Mike Hancock

That this House notes the unfairness of the funding for rugby clubs from Premiership Rugby for newly-promoted clubs; further notes media reports that London Welsh RFC will receive just £1.5 million this season while other rugby teams will receive £4 million; further notes that together with other funding from Premiership Rugby, newly-promoted clubs will receive just 30 per cent of the funding received by established Premiership Rugby clubs; believes that this creates a huge financial disadvantage for promoted clubs; further notes that newly-promoted clubs in the top tier of French rugby receive additional financial help to be competitive; further believes that this unfair funding makes it extremely hard for newly-promoted clubs to compete with established clubs; and further notes that the UK and EU competition authorities should investigate Premiership Rugby to assess whether UK competition and anti-cartel rules are being broken.

Mr Ronnie Campbell
Mr David Anderson

Mr Mike Hancock

That this House calls for an inquiry into the conduct of the Afghan War, especially the incursion into Helmand province, as requested by Mrs Hazel Hunt of Abergavenny, the mother of Richard Hunt, the 200th British fatality in the war, and as recommended by Lord Ashdown who wrote in The Mirror newspaper on 27 October 2014 that the UK in Afghanistan has written the textbook on how not to conduct a war; and believes that an inquiry would inform the House of errors made in order to avoid involvement in future unnecessary conflicts.

Mr Ian Davidson
*28
Glenda Jackson Andrew George Liz McInnes Mrs Mary Glindon Mr Mike Hancock

That this House notes the UN Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on 25 November 2014; further notes with concern that gender-based violence is present in every society in the world and that globally one in three women will be beaten or sexually abused in their lifetime and that this occurs everywhere, even in the workplace; further notes that while some International Labour Conventions, particularly No. 111 on gender equality and Convention No. 189 and Recommendation No. 200, refer to the issue of violence against women, they do not adequately address all forms of gender-based violence at work including prevention and protection of affected workers; and calls for the Government to take action on the UN Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women by giving its support to the creation of a new ILO Convention specifically on gender-based violence at work and by requesting that this be on the agenda of the next meeting of the ILO Governing Body.

Ms Diane Abbott

Sir Peter Bottomley
Jeremy Corbyn
Ms Margaret Ritchie
David Simpson
*18
Andrew George Mrs Mary Glindon Mr Mike Hancock Kelvin Hopkins

That this House notes that access to seed resources is central to small-scale farmers' ability to maintain resilient and productive livelihoods; further notes that, in facing the effects of climate change and changing global market forces, it is essential that poor farmers in Africa and elsewhere are supported to access and develop sustainable, productive and affordable seed resources through community-controlled initiatives; further notes that just three corporations now control 53 per cent of the global seed market, whilst farmers are experiencing dangerous levels of the debt and vulnerability as such corporations come to control their seed supply; further notes that UK aid is currently supporting initiatives such as the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition that promote plant variety protection laws such as in Ghana that fail to protect poor and indigenous farmers and are likely to increase the market dominance of transnational seed corporations; further notes that the Department for International Development committed in 2005 to end policy conditionality for UK aid recipients, yet seed policy reforms required from some recipient states as part of aid commitments under the New Alliance appear in practice to undermine this commitment; and calls on the Government to support community-controlled initiatives to assist farmers to access sustainable, affordable and productive seed varieties instead of initiatives that increase corporate control of seed markets.

467 NORTH WEST AMBULANCE SERVICE 4:11:14
Tim Farron
Sir Alan Meale
Mark Hunter
*3

That this House pays tribute to the lifesaving work undertaken every day by the North West Ambulance Service; notes that the geographical properties and often sparse population of Cumbria means that ambulances which are assigned for cover for South Lakeland patients are often drawn further south from their base due to the acute centres being located at Lancashire hospitals; further notes with concern that, although ambulance cover is commissioned according to demand by level of activity, this provision does not take into any consideration the geography, demography or risk to patient; and calls on the North West Clinical Commissioning Group to commission at least one additional ambulance for South Lakeland in order to guarantee that there is ambulance cover in South Lakeland at all times.

*17
Glenda Jackson Mrs Mary Glindon Mr Mike Hancock Kelvin Hopkins

That this House is deeply concerned about the death sentence by beheading and crucifixion passed by the Saudi authorities on Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr which is due to be carried out in the next few days; notes that Sheikh al-Nimr was detained in 2012 after backing mass pro-democracy protests in the Qatif district of eastern Saudi Arabia and was shot in the leg four times by police on arrest; joins with Amnesty International and other human rights organisations in believing that he was not given a fair trial; and calls on the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs to use whatever pressure he can to prevail on the Saudi government to stop this barbarous killing and release al-Nimr who has already been held for two years.

That this House is shocked at the disappearance of 43 students from their college, Ayotzinapa, in Guerrero, Mexico on 26 September 2014; sends its sympathies and solidarity to their families and teachers; calls for the Mexican government and authorities to take all possible action to locate the missing students and bring to justice those responsible for their abduction; is deeply concerned that their disappearance comes after more than 25,000 people have disappeared in Mexico since 2006; acknowledges that the disappeared often include the very vulnerable such as poor migrants, indigenous people, peasants, children and women; highlights the concerns of UK parliamentarians, Amnesty International and other bodies regarding the human rights situation in Mexico as exemplified in a seminar held just last week organised by the APPG Mexico and APPG Human Rights and attended by Mexico's Deputy Ambassador and others; offers its support to all those in Mexico who stand up for human rights and justice against corruption and violence; calls on the Government to support further dialogue between UK parliamentarians, Mexican government officials, relevant Foreign and Commonwealth Office officials and human rights organisations on human rights reform as a matter of the utmost urgency.

470 BANK BRANCHES IN SEDBERGH AND MILNTHORPE 4:11:14
Tim Farron
Sir Alan Meale
Mr George Galloway
Mark Hunter
Mr Mike Hancock
*5

That this House recognises that although the use of online banking has risen in recent years, there remains a very sizeable minority of people who rely solely on their local branch to do their banking; notes with concern the recent branch closure announcements by NatWest and Barclays in Sedbergh, which will result in the town being left without any bank branch and only one ATM, and the further announcement by NatWest that it will also be closing its Milnthorpe branch; regrets the detrimental effect that this will have on the local economy, including through the job losses this will incur, and the substantial disruption it will cause for local residents, in particular the elderly, vulnerable adults, and those who cannot drive; further notes that the NatWest customer charter states that it 'will make banking easier' and be there 'whenever you need help'; therefore strongly calls on NatWest and Barclays to fulfil their ethical duty to customers at a time when public trust in the sector is at an all-time low by working together to keep these branches open; and further calls on all UK banks to voluntarily recommit to retaining branches in towns where a closure would remove all banking services from the town.

That this House notes Oxfam's latest report entitled Even it up: Time to end extreme inequality; further notes that the report highlights that, in 2013, seven out of 10 people lived in countries where economic inequality is worse than 30 years ago; further notes that the report states that extreme inequality is a barrier to poverty reduction, that economic inequality hurts everyone, and that it drives inequalities in health, education and life chances while compounding inequality between women and men; recognises that poverty and inequality are not inevitable but the result of policy choices; understands that a diverse range of people and organisations, from Pope Francis to the International Monetary Fund, are speaking out on the issue of inequality; further recognises the need for further discussions; welcomes the call from Oxfam that, with the right political and economic choices, this House can help reduce extreme economic inequality; further notes the recommendations in the report; and wishes Oxfam continued success with its campaign.

Glenda Jackson Annette Brooke Mark Hunter Mr Mike Hancock

That this House notes that Oxfam America, Human Rights Watch and the Farm Labour Organizing Committee (FLOC), being an affiliate of the US equivalent of the TUC, have highlighted onerous conditions faced by migrant farm workers in the tobacco fields of North Carolina and the American South, including exploitation, long hours, child labour and other human rights abuses; further notes that Reynolds American Inc. (RAI) is a major purchaser of the tobacco produced in those fields but refuses to grant freedom of association or workers representation to those workers, and that British American Tobacco plc (BAT) is the largest shareholder and a major customer of RAI; believes that only when migrant farm workers have a recognised organisation will their complaint about their working and living conditions be effectively addressed; further believes that BAT has a responsibility to ensure that its supply chain is free of human rights abuses and that FLOC's proposals to RAI can achieve that goal in the US; therefore calls on BAT to use its influence with RAI to reach an agreement with FLOC forthwith; further calls on the Government to ensure provisions within the Modern Slavery Bill would prohibit such human rights abuses; and further calls on the Government to raise these issues in trade discussions with US counterparts.

473 NATIONAL ISLAMOPHOBIA AWARENESS MONTH 2014 5:11:14
Greg Mulholland
Sir Peter Bottomley
Andrew George
Jim Shannon
Mark Hunter
Mr Mike Hancock
*6

That this House expresses its full support for National Islamophobia Awareness Month in November 2014; is deeply concerned at October 2014 figures from the Metropolitan Police that anti-Muslim hate crime had risen 65 per cent in the previous 12 months; notes that these are only figures for London and is concerned at the wider possible picture around the country; further notes Teesside University's research published in June 2014 that the majority of victims tend to be women; stands with the British Muslim community in total opposition to such attacks, particularly from extremist individuals and far-right groups; commends the work of the Tell MAMA project run by the Faith Matters charity to monitor anti-Muslim hatred; further notes recent comments from the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, that we are seeing an upsurge in racist, anti-Semitic and anti-Islamic comments; strongly condemns all such comments and acts, whether occurring online or physically; warns against demonisation of minority communities that may perpetrate such attitudes, such as sweeping generalisations of an incredibly diverse community or assigning collective blame because of the actions of some individuals; strongly commends grassroots organisations, mosques, scholars and university Islamic societies positively engaging and empowering young British Muslims; urges better monitoring of religiously aggravated hate crime with only 24 out of 43 police forces in England and Wales currently doing this; and calls for strengthening the cross-government Anti-Muslim Hatred Working Group and supporting the Muslim Council of Britain in its work as the democratic voice of the 2.8 million-strong British Muslim community.

474 TERM TIME ABSENCE AND THE NAHT GUIDANCE 5:11:14
John Hemming
Jim Shannon
Mr Mike Hancock
*3

That this House welcomes the production of Guidance for Head Teachers on the way in which decisions should be made about term time absence requests; believes that the u-turn from the Government in accepting the merits of having such guidance is also to be welcomed; notes, however, the excessive overcrowding that is now happening at certain holiday sites in the UK and the hazards that arise at these places for young children; further believes that policy decisions should be evidence-driven and notes the Government evidence that indicates that a small amount of absence for primary school children for holidays slightly improves their achievement level at Key Stage 2; further believes that further progress is needed in staggering holiday periods to avoid conflict; calls for Ofsted not to place unreasonable pressures on schools to refuse requests for holiday absence; believes that parents are primarily responsible for the care of children and the state should avoid intervening without research evidence to just this; and further calls for the focus on absence to shift from ordinary families to those cases of persistent absence where there is research evidence that the absence is causing harm to the child's education.

475 SOCIAL CONSERVATISM AND NON-VIOLENT EXTREMISM 5:11:14
John Hemming
Mr Mike Hancock
*2

That this House notes the debate about non-violent extremism; further notes that Ofsted has taken a more assertive attitude in respect of promoting a narrow agenda which is intolerant of socially conservative views since that debate started; believes that there are important general principles such as non-discrimination that should be promoted, but recognises that there are different views on matters relating to sexual activity held by different people in society; additionally recognises that there is a conflict between the state encouraging children under the age of 16 to be sexually active and attempting to prevent child sexual exploitation; further believes that it is wrong to equate social conservatism with extremism; and calls for the Government to review with Ofsted, as part of a public debate, how we can develop a more tolerant approach which is more accepting of the variety of views that are held about such issues.

479 THE NEED FOR NEW AFFORDABLE HOMES 5:11:14
Mr George Galloway
Mr Mike Hancock
*2

That this House is deeply concerned that there will be one million fewer affordable homes in 2018 than there were in 1980, while the population has grown by seven million people; notes that there are 1.68 million households on social housing waiting lists in England and Wales; points out that rents are being subsidised through housing benefit by almost £24 million a year, or about 30 per cent of the entire UK welfare bill; and urges the Government to fuel a massive social house-building programme amounting to around three million affordable homes by 2030, which would not only provide the needed housing but would substantially cut the welfare bill.

480 ASIYA BIBI 5:11:14
Jim Shannon
David Simpson
Mr Nigel Dodds
Mr Gregory Campbell
Mr Jeffrey M. Donaldson
Mark Durkan
*9
Mr Adrian Sanders Mrs Mary Glindon Mr Mike Hancock

That this House deeply regrets that the death sentence passed on Asiya Bibi four years ago under Pakistan's blasphemy law has not been lifted; notes with concern that hundreds of other victims of these laws, including the Briton Mohammad Asghar, are still languishing in jails under threat of death by fellow prisoners and prison guards; denounces the repeated patterns of deliberate and false accusations of blasphemy by private individuals who then use it as an excuse to broadcast the hate material from the mosques, and attacking whole non-Muslim communities; and calls on the Pakistani government to ensure the safety of their non-Muslim citizens.

482 ACADEMY SPONSORSHIP 5:11:14
Mr George Galloway
Mr Mike Hancock
*2

That this House is shocked that there are no powers to monitor and judge academy sponsors and multi-academy trusts; notes that academy schools were first introduced under Labour in 2010 but ballooned under the present Government; points out that academy chains have paid millions of pounds into the private business of directors, trustees and their relatives; and concludes that the introduction of private backers and sponsors into the education system has been a hugely costly disaster to the detriment of hundreds of thousands of children.

483 EAST LANCASHIRE CAMRA 5:11:14

Jim Fitzpatrick

Lorraine Fullbrook
*10
Jim Shannon Mark Hunter Mr Mike Hancock

That this House notes the success of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) as a campaigning organisation; further notes that this success is built on its membership and the strength of its branch network; further notes that in 2014 East Lancashire CAMRA celebrates its 40th anniversary, along with having one of its branch members, Stephen Dilworth, as the landlord of the national CAMRA Pub of the Year, The Swan with Two Necks; and congratulates John Webster, the Chairman of East Lancashire CAMRA and its membership on its 40th anniversary.

485 CAP PAYMENTS AND BULLFIGHTING 5:11:14
Sir Alan Meale
Mr Adrian Sanders
Mr Mike Hancock
Kelvin Hopkins
*4

That this House is aware that under the current Common Agriculture Policy, annual payments are being made to farmers from EU countries that breed bulls for use in bullfights; notes that this provision is estimated at approximately £110 million per year, with £13.5 million alone from the proportion of the UK budget; believes that bullfighting for fiestas is abhorrent as it involves the torture of animals in public display, a practice which flies in the face of Britain's own Animal Welfare Act 2006 and of the European Convention on animals kept for farming purposes, which specifically states that animals should not suffer pain, injury or distress; believes that such financial allocations are a clear violation of these laws; and calls on the Government to immediately cease such payments forthwith.

486 DEMONSTRATIONS IN PARLIAMENT SQUARE 6:11:14
Mr David Amess
Sir Peter Bottomley
*2

That this House condemns the violent demonstrations that took place on 5 November 2014, organised by Anonymous; further condemns the destruction of property and attacks on the police; and believes that the protesters should be held to account finally for their actions and told to live in North Korea.

487 PROPOSAL FOR UK POLICY ON DRONE USE 6:11:14
Mr Tom Watson
Mr David Davis
Yasmin Qureshi
John Hemming
Mr David Anderson
Mrs Linda Riordan
*6

That this House welcomes the Birmingham Policy Commission inquiry into The Security Impact of Drones: Challenges and Opportunities for the UK, chaired by Professor Sir David Omand, the report of which was published on 22 October 2014; notes that the exploitation of drones to the UK's benefit is held back by a lack of central direction; stresses the need for policy on the use of drones articulating the UK position on application of international human rights and humanitarian law in complex conflicts; calls on the Government to distinguish UK practice, and protect UK personnel, from inadvertent complicity in the targeted killing of suspects outside traditional battlefields by the US; invites the Government to disclose the guidance issued to staff, and safeguards in place, to ensure that shared intelligence cannot be used for targeted killing contrary to UK law; and further calls on the Government to implement these recommendations forthwith.

488 YOUTH SERVICES 6:11:14
Mr Gerry Sutcliffe
Sir Peter Bottomley
*2

That this House believes that all young people across the UK should have access to a statutory funded, wide-ranging and universal youth service with ring-fenced funding from central government which is delivered by local authorities working closely with schools and youth voluntary organisations; notes the importance of youth services being delivered by professionally qualified youth workers, who offer young people the benefit of wide-ranging information, advice, guidance and support; recognises that a statutory funded, wide-ranging and universal youth service will deliver not only a safe and secure environment for young people to thrive, but in addition, embed critical life skills that enable young people to positively contribute to society both socially and economically; additionally recognises that for many young people, especially the most vulnerable and those from disadvantaged communities, the provision of a statutory funded, universal and wide-ranging youth service will support their journey into further and higher education, employment or training; further believes that a statutory funded, wide-ranging and universal youth service will constitute value for money in that such a service will lead to many young people not having to access higher tiered and more costly interventions later in their lives; and further believes that responsibility for youth services within central government should rest with the Department for Education.

489 BBC AND RWANDA 6:11:14
Eric Joyce
*1

That this House is dismayed at the BBC's production of the genocide denial programme entitled, This World - Rwanda's untold story; recognises the central place the programme now occupies in the activities of genocide denialists; urges the BBC to conduct an immediate inquiry into the editorial and managerial decisions which led to the airing of the programme on BBC2 on 1 October 2014; further urges the Director General of the BBC, a member of the House of Lords, to act personally and transparently to deal with this matter of profound political significance and social injustice; and commends the campaigning efforts of Professor Linda Melvern et al to this end.

490 CHILD AND ADOLESCENT MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES 6:11:14
Mr Barry Sheerman
Bill Esterson
Sir Richard Shepherd
Sir Peter Bottomley
*4

That this House commends the work undertaken by YoungMinds which indicates that two-thirds of local authorities in England have reduced their Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) budget since 2010; notes that one local authority, in response to YoungMinds' inquiry, confirmed that there had been a cut in its spending of 41 per cent since 2010; further notes that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guidelines advise that families should get CAMHS diagnostic assessment within three months of referral; and further notes that across the country this target is being missed, with families reporting that in some cases they are waiting years for effective support and advice.

491 BRITISH RED CROSS AND TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE 6:11:14
Philip Davies
Sir Gerald Howarth
Mr Stewart Jackson
Sir Peter Bottomley
*4

That this House is deeply concerned by the decision of the Red Cross to dismiss long-serving volunteer Bryan Barkley because of his personal support for traditional marriage; notes that his views were expressed reasonably, in his own time, and were in no way connnected with his work for the Red Cross; and calls on the Red Cross to reinstate Mr Barkley immediately.

492 DISCLOSURE OF CONVICTIONS HELD ABROAD 6:11:14
John Mann
*1

That this House notes that the criminal convictions held by EU citizens that are revealed by a Disclosure and Barring Service check are only those held in central records in the UK; is concerned that this does not therefore include convictions held abroad of foreign nationals; further notes that it is not obligatory for an employer to require an employee to provide a certificate of good conduct from their home country; and therefore calls on the Government to introduce and enforce the obligatory disclosure of any previous convictions held by EU and other foreign-born citizens upon application for a job in the UK.

493 PROTECTION OF CHILDREN FROM EXPLOITATION THROUGH SEX TOURISM 6:11:14
Fiona Bruce
*1

That this House believes that children across the world must be protected from sexual exploitation; recognises that the phenomenon of sex tourism is a problem which must be tackled both by the country where the crime is committed and, where the perpetrator is a British national, by the UK; notes particularly the known vulnerability of Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, India and Brazil to this crime; commends section 72 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003, which provides for the prosecution of extra-territorial crimes; further notes that the Government signed the Council of Europe Convention on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse, which contains measures to encourage co-operation between states on the issue of sex tourism; commends the work of the National Crime Agency, Serious Crime Agency and Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre in combating sex tourism, but notes the lack of prosecutions in this area despite the provision in law; further recognises that more must be done; and calls on the Government to fulfil its obligations under this law to prosecute cases of sex tourism, to ensure that British nationals do not act with impunity, and to protect vulnerable children from sexual exploitation.

Prepared 7th November 2014
