Anne Main calls for the release Ms Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

13th November 2017

Anne Main calls for the release of British-Iranian national Ms Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, and lamented that a very sensitive situation is being, ‘held in contempt.’

I am delighted to hear the hon. Member for East Dunbartonshire (Jo Swinson) say that this is the fault of the Iranians, because it leaves us in no doubt about the politics being played here today. This is the worst possible situation. The fact that the right hon. Member for Exeter (Mr Bradshaw) tried to button in on the back of this shows how this sensitive situation is being held in contempt. I wish my right hon. Friend the very best in seeking to bring this honourable lady home, because she needs to be with her husband and family.

I am sure that my hon. Friend speaks for everybody in her constituency and the country, and I know that she speaks for Members on the other side of the House as well.
