Jim Murphy MP, Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary, has requested, and the Speaker of the House of Commons, has agreed an urgent statement on today’s UK-France defence and security treaties.

Jim Murphy said:

“I welcome greater cooperation with France on defence matters; it is crucial for our national security, but it is wrong that Parliament has been kept in the dark on issues with significant constitutional and national security implications.

“It is right that the Secretary of State is summoned to Parliament to tell MPs of all parties detail of this fundamental issue.”
