EDM 99: Refugees Crossing the Mediterranean and Mare Nostrum

I have sponsored the 'Refugees Crossing the Mediterranean and Mare Nostrum' EDM.

That this House urges the Prime Minister to recognise the fatal impact of the decision in 2014 to cancel Operation Mare Nostrum in October 2014, and the decision to replace it with the much more limited Operation Triton, resulting in the loss of thousands of lives of desperate refugees, exploited by traffickers; further urges the Prime Minister to do everything in his power to restore the full provisions of Mare Nostrum; and calls on him to review urgently the numbers of places available in the UK for refugees, particularly those who have relatives in this country, who are fleeing violence, persecution and suffering.
