M461 - Peace Corps Motion 2018, Joecphillips seconded by JellyMilkThis house calls upon the government to send the British Peace Corps to Myanmar and Bangladesh to help the Rohingya refugees have had to flee their homes due to the conditions they faced, the Peace Corps could help improve the infrastructure in the camps the refugees are staying and help rebuild the area they had to flee,

Part of the Peace Corps mission is “to contribute forces to operations other than war in support of British interests and international order and humanitarian principles.” And I would say this counts.

I asked for assurances from the PM that the troops would only be used in a citizen protection role, and not to take the side of the government or rebel group on either side. I do not believe I got these so will be abstaining on the motion.

Aye, this is a group that only intends to provide aid and since we have it, we might as well use it

You don't really need my assurance. Because if we didn't do that then it's not doing what the motion wants the government to do... which is to use the Peace Corps for the sole purpose of helping the refugees.

Surely this is a matter better left to the UN Peacekeepers?
