Aleppo air drops

The situation in Aleppo is beyond desperate. All of Aleppo’s hospitals are out of action, meaning that medics are having to amputate children’s limbs without anaesthetic and treat the victims of chemical attacks with just water and oxygen. The Government say there is a safer way to deliver aid, yet knows that the Syrian regime bombed the latest UN humanitarian convoy which went to the city in September. The residents of Aleppo do not want to die and it is in our power to help them.
This week, I signed a letter along with 200 of my colleagues across Parliament calling on Theresa May to authorise air drops immediately, and spoke in the Chamber and to BBC 5 Live on this issue.
