Anna McMorrin – 2021 Comments on Yemen

The comments made by Anna McMorrin, the Shadow International Development Minister, on 25 March 2021.

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.
