That this House notes that 21 April 2023 marked seven years since Mordechai Vanunu was released from Ashkelon prison having served his full sentence of 18 years for revealing the truth about Israel’s nuclear weapons programme; further notes that he faces no further charges and yet since his release he has continued to be subject to severe restrictions on his human rights on freedom of movement, speech and association; requests that the Government condemns these ongoing restrictions; and calls on the Israeli government to recognise Vanunu’s full human rights by allowing him to leave Israel forthwith, as he has so often declared to be his wish.

Don Foster signed EDM 1825 that states:

That this House regrets that the Treasury’s scheme for compensating Equitable Life investors is inadequate and inequitable; notes that under that proposed scheme some 775 million will be paid to nearly 950,000 policy-holders representing just over 22 per cent. of their relative losses, while 620 million will be shared among 37,000 with profits annuitants; further notes thedilatory undertaking that policy-holders due such payments will receive a letter before June 2012 informing them of how much they are to get and when they might do so, but that there will be no contact with 10,000 customers to be denied compensation because they took out policies before September 1992; deplores the fact that, even though some payments will start in 2011, the payment scheme is being strung out over five years when victims have already waited a frustrating decade; applauds the determination ofthe Equitable Members Action Groupto secure a fairer, fuller and faster scheme; and calls on the Government to improve the scheme to provide terms which are consistent with its own pledges and the spirit of previous debates in this House.
