Mr. Douglas Hogg: Those countries that have issued statements about the Crisis in Yemen have, as far as we are aware, supported neither one side nor the other.
As the right hon. Gentleman rightly said, violence and the political Crisis in Yemen take place against a background of a serious social and economic situation in that country.
We on the opposition Benches join him in supporting the Gulf Co-operation Council initiative to resolve the Crisis in Yemen and to achieve a peaceful political settlement.
I join the Foreign Secretary by saying that the Opposition, too, support the Gulf Co-operation Council initiative to resolve the current Crisis in Yemen and achieve a peaceful political settlement.
As I speak, the Crisis in Yemen is deepening.
The right hon. Gentleman talked about the difficulties of the current Crisis in Yemen.
Mr Speaker, there is a considerable irony in the fact that this debate on the Crisis in Yemen comes immediately after your welcome statement on the British experience of the rule of law and democracy.
I have received numerous representations from my constituents about the dire humanitarian Crisis in Yemen.
The horrendous humanitarian Crisis in Yemen is causing great distress to my constituents, as many British citizens' sole dependants and relatives are stranded in dire, life-threatening circumstances.
My Lords, the world is facing humanitarian emergencies in unprecedented numbers, scale and complexity, from the Ebola epidemic that hit Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea last year to the devastating earthquake in Nepal in April, and from the current Crisis in Yemen to the conflict that has raged in Syria for more than four years now.
He spoke about the humanitarian Crisis in Yemen, which certainly worries me.
The UK Government should ensure that the Yemen Crisis is given a higher priority on the global agenda for the provision of emergency aid and the Department for International Development should continue to lead global efforts to provide emergency assistance to the population.
The Yemen Crisis should be given a higher priority on the global agenda and made a priority in the provision of emergency aid.
She said that poverty was at 50% before the conflict and it is now at 80%, and that the Crisis in Yemen must be given a higher priority.
The humanitarian Crisis in Yemen is increasingly desperate, and many civilians have been killed in airstrikes.
If the evidence in the UN report is upheld in due course - evidence that the Saudis have been using cluster weapons dropped by British aircraft on civilian populations, which can only exacerbate the political Crisis in Yemen - will the Minister undertake to ban weapons sales to Saudi Arabia, or will he just give it a limp slap on the wrist?
It is regrettable that the Crisis in Yemen has been carrying on in different ways and far from the attention of the rest of the world, and even since our last debate, the situation has deteriorated and the civil war in the country has carried on into yet another year.
The humanitarian Crisis in Yemen should shame us all.
Today the Select Committee on International Development publishes its report on the Crisis in Yemen, and one issue that we highlight is the impact on children and young people, including the fact that 47% of school-age children are not at school.
The humanitarian aid provided by this country to refugees as a result of the Crisis in Yemen is second in the ranking of countries around the world.
With a growing humanitarian Crisis in Yemen, and mounting reports indicating that international humanitarian law has been seriously and repeatedly breached by all parties engaged in warfare in the country - including the Saudi-led coalition - the Government need to get their head out of the sand.
I have mentioned the humanitarian Crisis in Yemen, and before I finish I would like to expand further.
