Liberal Democrat Home Affairs Spokesperson Ed Davey has secured an Urgent Question in the House of Commons this afternoon on the Home Secretary’s decision to deprive Shamima Begum’s British citizenship.
 
Responding to the Speaker’s decision to grant his application for an Urgent Question, Ed Davey said:
 
“The decision to strip someone of their citizenship is a very serious one, and the Home Secretary has big questions to answer.
 
“It’s hard to see how a 19-year-old mother and her new-born baby boy constitute a serious threat to national security. Simply making her somebody else’s problem is an appalling abdication of the UK’s responsibility.
 
“Ms Begum should be prosecuted in the UK for her crimes and interrogated so that we can learn exactly how ISIL recruits young British people like her.”
