Following the recent event of Dewsbury teenager Talha Asmal who took the lives of eleven people in a suicide bombing in Iraq at the weekend, Dewsbury MP, Paula Sherriff has been loud and clear in calling for action.
In Prime Ministers Questions on Wednesday. Sherriff asked the Chancellor: “Will the Chancellor agree to convene a meeting between myself and Home Office Ministers to discuss a revisit and review of counter terror policy – particularly with reference to tackling radicalisation.”
The Chancellor responded saying that Home Office Ministers would be very happy to meet with Hon Lady and indeed her constituents.
Sherriff commented afterwards: “I am pleased the Chancellor has granted a meeting with myself and Home Office Ministers. Innocent lives are being lost through acts of terror and current policy is obviously not working. We need an urgent review into this to stop the likes of ISIS and other evil terrorist organisations from radicalising young men and women before more lives are lost.”
