Morecambe MP tables Commons question on those convicted over the cockling disaster

David Morris MP has tabled a Parliamentary motion demanding to know how many years those convicted of the cockle pickering disaster served in prison.

That this House notes that Lin Liang Ren, Lin Mu Yong and Zhao Xiao Qing were all convicted for their involvement in the Morecambe Bay cockle pickers' disaster; further notes that the 10th anniversary of the disaster is in February 2014; considers that the people of Morecambe deserve to know how many years each served in prison in the UK; and further considers that the people of Morecambe deserve to know when they were deported and whether they are currently incarcerated in their native China._
