Jo Cox has followed up her emergency Parliamentary debate on the besieged Syrian town of Madaya with a letter to the International Development Secretary Justine Greening.

The Speaker of the House of Commons granted Mrs Cox an Urgent Question last week. This meant Ms Greening had to come to the House and answer questions from Mrs Cox and other MPs on the situation on Madaya.

The letter is a follow up to Ms Greening’s statement and answers to the House. It is also part of Mrs Cox’s continued efforts to protect civilians in Syria and make sure Britain is doing all it can to ensure starvation is not being used as a weapon of war.
