The House of Lords All-Party Genocide Amendment was today defeated in the House of Commons  by a slender margin – a Government majority of 11. The Genocide amendment will now return to the  House of Lords which will be asked to consider a refined version – which, if agreed – will go back to the House of Commons. Just 6 more good men and women on the Conservative benches need to change their minds and the High Court will be given the task of deciding whether a Genocide is under way in States with which we have trade agreements.
