Terrorist Threat To The UK

EDM number 607 in 2012-13, proposed by Paul Flynn on 19/10/2012.
Categorised under the topic of Terrorism.

That this House notes that Ministers have recently repeated the claim that the lives of British soldiers should be put at risk in Afghanistan to counter the alleged Afghan Taliban terrorist threat to the UK; believes that there is no truth in this claim and that the lives of British soldiers should not be sacrificed when no threat to the UK exists; and calls on the Coalition Government to adopt an independent foreign policy.

This motion has been signed by a total of 9 MPs.
