The chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria on 7 April 2018 has been widely reported. Here is my response:
I have been contacted by constituents about the horrendous chemical weapons attack on the residential neighbourhood of Douma and the UK response. The initial reports of over 70 dead; and people found in their homes foaming at the mouth and with chemical burns on their eyes was truly shocking.
Don Valley MP Caroline Flint has voted to support the Government’s proposal to support the UN resolution calling for action to target ISIL-Daesh’s safe havens in Syria.
Prior to the vote, the MP had undertaken a survey of constituents and posted a survey on her website. The results showed a majority of constituents supporting military action against ISIL-Daesh.
