      That this House in congratulating the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey on the forthcoming celebrations of the 60th anniversary of their liberation from Nazi occupation, in which they were the only parts of the British Isles to be subjected to enemy occupation, reminds the UK Government that the governments in the Islands remain reluctant to achieve, still less enforce, even minimal standards of human rights compliance and that the inhabitants of these British territories are denied the protection of international treaty and convention obligations contrary to the commitments entered into by successive UK governments which have ultimate responsibility for the good governance of the Channel Islands; and urges the Government to celebrate the anniversary of occupation by an inquiry to determine the extent to which the Islands are now compliant with human rights obligations and to make recommendations to speed implementation of all of them.
