Tunisian terrorist attack debated in Commons

The House of Commons held a minute's silence on Monday 29th June as MPs came together for the first time since the terrorist attack in Tunisia on Friday.

The Prime Minister outlined to Parliament the current situation, telling MPs about the action the government has been taking to support victims and their families.

The House heard about the work the Home Office is carrying out, as well as news that Home Secretary Theresa May had travelled to the tourist resort of Sousse with her colleague Tobias Elwood MP to pay respects and liaise with representatives from the Tunisian, French and German governments.

Mr Cameron also outlined what had been discussed in the COBRA meetings over the weekend, as well as the work the Foreign Office is carrying out.

During the session, which lasted just over 90 minutes, Winchester & Chandler's Ford MP Steve Brine said that he welcomed the 'sensible and measured' advice from the Foreign Office over recent days, and asked what conversations had been held with the Tunisian authorities on the domestic security response that people considering travelling to the coastal region in the coming days can expect.

The Prime Minister replied that conversations were going on 'right now', and that the Home Secretary was offering UK help with security.

There were a range of contributions heard, including many from MPs who had affected constituents, as well as questions from MPs such as Conor Burns, Liam Fox and Jeremy Corbyn.
