John Healey responds to Afghan interpreter data breach

John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary, responding to the Afghan interpreter data breach, said:

“We told these Afghans interpreters we would keep them safe, instead this breach has needlessly put lives at risk.

“The priority now is to urgently step up efforts to get these Afghans safely to the UK.

“This is the second major data breach from the MoD this year, after sensitive documents were discovered at a bus stop in Kent in June. Clearly, the Defence Secretary needs to get his house in order.”
