Two Enfield MPs have called on the Prime Minister to recall parliament over concerns in Iraq.

Enfield North MP Nick de Bois and Enfield Southgate MP David Burrowes have written a joint letter to David Cameron urging him to bring back MPs from their holidays.

MPs are set to return on September 1, but the two MPs are urging the Prime Minister to hold a debate on the crisis in Iraq.

The letter reads: “What we are witnessing in Iraq is truly shocking and requires a co-ordinated international response.

“The horrific persecution of minority groups in the region impose both a moral obligation and a duty to our constituents to reconvene so that the escalating crisis can be properly debated with a view to the government being able to seek guidance from and support of the house for policies aimed at ending the killing.

“It is vital that the House of Commons debate an appropriate response to this emergency.”

The pair also believe that there is a lack of co-ordinated international response and that the conflict in Gaza has caused “widespread issues” amongst their constituents.
