Education spokesperson Layla Moran

“Yemen is facing the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world. Children are being denied an education due to the conflict. The coronavirus pandemic is spreading in the country.

“UK Aid has helped millions and stands as a testament to the best of British values. Now is not the time to reduce our commitment to support the world’s most vulnerable.”
