MP calls for Parliament to be recalled in "national emergency"

Clwyd South Labour MP Susan Elan Jones (pictured) has signed a letter calling on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to recall Parliament.

“We face a national emergency,” she said. 

“We now know the Government in its own documentation is admitting a no-deal Brexit would cause food, fuel and medicine shortages but Boris Johnson is doing everything he can to avoid being questioned by MPs. 

"Parliament should always be recalled at times of national significance, indeed in the past it’s even been recalled to pay tributes to a deceased Prime Minister. If Boris Johnson is a democrat, he has nothing to fear in coming to Parliament. He should not hide away.”

More than 100 MPs, representing all parties except the Democratic Unionist Party, have signed the letter to the Prime Minister. 

The letter also calls for Parliament to be in session until October 31 - the day earmarked for Brexit - with no autumn recess.
