Statement by the Prime Minister on Defending the UK and Allies 15 January 2024

On Monday 15 January 2024 the Prime Minister came to the House to make a statement and to be questioned for the first time following his agreement with the US to attack the Houthis in Yemen who had targeted ships in the Red Sea. The Prime Minister made the intervention without a motion to the House.   

“Having been born in Aden, I am obviously saddened that the democratic and humanitarian crisis in Yemen over the last nine years has not provoked such an active response against the Houthis. Can I ask the Prime Minister,  who advised the Prime Minister not to come to Parliament? and how will he ensure that the peace agreement in Yemen is actively and vigorously monitored and pursued?”

here is my question:

I was pleased the Prime Minister also increased funding to Ukraine.
