PM must not hide from Parliament on US-Iran tensions

Responding to the news that Boris Johnson will not make a statement on Iran and has sent the Defence Secretary in his place, Acting Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said:


"It is shameful that Boris Johnson is hiding behind his Ministers rather than addressing the intensification of tensions between the US and Iran.

ā€œThe Prime Minister must stop dodging Parliament and explain what he will do to de-escalate the situation and ensure the safety of British service personnel and civilians in the region.

ā€œBoris Johnson must confirm that he will not blindly follow Donald Trump into military action against Iran. That would be the most reckless decision since the Iraq war.ā€
