Anna McMorrin comments on sixth anniversary of military intervention in Yemen

Anna McMorrin MP, Labour’s Shadow International Development Minister, commenting on the sixth anniversary of military intervention in Yemen, said:

“The Conservative Government chooses to slash life-saving aid to Yemen and fuel conflict with UK arms instead of coming together to help this war torn country in its darkest hour.

“After six years of immeasurable suffering, the humanitarian situation in Yemen is on the brink of irreversible catastrophe.

“Millions of Yemenis are without critical lifelines and face one of the worst famines in a generation. The UK should not be cutting aid and instead play its part saving lives.”
