HALABJA GAS ATTACK AND ANFAL CAMPAIGN ANNIVERSARY

That this House notes the commemoration of the 21st anniversary of the Halabja gas attack; recognises that the Halabja atrocity and the subsequent Anfal Campaign of 1988 together constituted a genocide against the Kurdish people; further recognises the results are still with the Halabja people through cancers, birth abnormalities, deformities, pollution and poisoned land; supports a proposal to establish a compensation fund for the survivors and the bereaved, to be funded by a percentage of profits made by oil and other companies who sign new contracts within the Iraqi and Kurdish governments; and calls on the Government to press the United Nations to release the names of all the companies who supplied the chemical agents to the Ba'ath regime so that the companies may be pressed to provide ex-gratia payments to the fund.
