Davey: PM must hold Westminster leaders crisis meeting on Afghanistan


Liberal Democrat Leader Ed Davey has written to the Prime Minister calling on him to host a "Westminster Leaders Crisis Meeting" on the Afghanistan crisis.

In the letter, leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey MP said:

"It is without doubt that we face a crucial point in history and, as a nation, we must act together before it is too late.

"Given the tragedy unfolding before our eyes and the grave threat to national security this raises, I urge you to invite all Westminster party leaders from across the UK to meet with you to discuss our nation’s response to this crisis. It is also right that Parliament is recalled as soon as possible to discuss the UK’s response.

"The UK has a responsibility to the people of Afghanistan and to the international community.

"Now is the time to act - to do the right thing, and bring political parties together in our national interest."
