Shabana Mahmood MP Labour Member of Parliament for Birmingham Ladywood
Many constituents have been in touch regarding their support for Palestine, in response to recent events in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
I am, and always have been, a passionate and determined supporter of Palestinian rights and my parliamentary record on this issue speaks for itself. My support extends fully to citizens in the Occupied Palestinian Territories who have had themselves or their families displaced or injured by Israel’s military action in the region.
I am also a longstanding member of Labour Friends of Palestine and the Middle East.
