Eastern Ghouta


The situation is desperate in Eastern Ghouta.  The immediate humanitarian needs are of course paramount, but we also need to think long term and find a way to stop this conflict.

The Labour Party managed to get an urgent question granted in the House of Commons recently.  You can read the exchanges here.

I also asked the Foreign Secretary a Question about Iranian involvement

The Government didn’t give too many assurances that they were doing all they could but we will continue to press them for action.

My colleague, John Woodcock MP, who sponsored the request for an Urgent Question, made a particularly powerful speech.
