Andrew Bridgen calls on all parties to condemn the Maduro regime in Venezuela where troops have been using violence and intimidation to prevent vital aid from entering the country.

Andrew Bridgen (North West Leicestershire) (Con)

My right hon. Friend will have been as shocked as I was to see the appalling scenes of Venezuelan troops using violence and intimidation to prevent vital aid from entering their country, which has been ravaged by socialism for decades. Will my right hon. Friend join me in calling on all parties around the world, and in particular the Labour leadership in this House, to condemn utterly Maduro’s actions and his illegitimate regime in Venezuela?

Sir Alan Duncan

Any and every decent person in this House utterly condemns the barring of much needed humanitarian aid from getting into Venezuela. We all stand together in condemning those who are preventing that much needed source of supplies.
