Private Members Motion addressing the Humanitarian Crisis of the Rohingya People in Myanmar

I was grateful for the opportunity to speak on this very important motion which seeks to raise the ongoing humanitarian crisis of the Rohingyas as they remain displaced in camps on the Bangladesh boarder.  There are an estimated 850,000 refugees - men, women and children with over half a million arriving since August last year.

We are only just seeing the extent of the atrocities as they are being revealed to us by the international media, the aid agencies and the parliamentarians who have visited the refugee camps.
