Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the
Labour Party
,
commenting on today’s attack in Westminster, said:

“Today’s horrific attack in
Westminster has shocked the whole country. All our thoughts are with the
victims of this outrage, their loved ones, families and friends.

“Those victims include civilians
and police officers, Londoners and visitors, subjected to a brutal and
indiscriminate assault.

“Our thanks and gratitude go to
the police and emergency services who responded so bravely, and to those –
including the MP Tobias Ellwood – who went to the aid of the injured and dying.

innocent people. It was also an attack on our democracy.

people across the country will stand together in defence of our values and
diversity.”
