Corbyn questions legal basis for drones

Commenting on the Prime Minister’s inadequate response in the Chamber to his question today, Jeremy Corbyn MP said: “I am now writing to offer the Prime Minister the opportunity to explain his inadequate response to my request for an urgent summit involving the UN, EU, and the US on Syria and the refugee crisis.

“I have questioned the legal basis for the use of drones. Urgent consideration now needs to be given to the appropriate process by which attacks such as this one are sanctioned, on what evidence and on what basis of law.”
