Today, in the National Assembly for Wales, Plaid Cymru tabled the following motion for debate;
"This Assembly notes the concern raised in Wales by individuals, organisations and public protests relating to the military action taken in the Gaza Strip".
If we ignore the issue of whether this is an appropriate motion for debate in the National Assembly for Wales, I can accept this as a reasonable motion, even if I would have preferred "and Israel" to be added at the end.
There was an attempt by The Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats to table amendments to this motion - which I'm told were not called because the Presiding Officer decided it to be a 'Take note' motion, which cannot be amended. I thought you might be interested in the amendments that were included on the published order paper but not called.
The Conservatives put forward;
"Calls on the Welsh Assembly Government to make representations to the UK Government to help find a long term solution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict through negotiating a two state agreement that achieves a viable and secure Palestine existing alongside a secure Israel."
The Liberal Democrats put forward;
"Calls on the Welsh Assembly Government to make representations to the UK Government to halt arms exports to Israel."
What do you think of that?
