Keir Starmer and David Lammy meeting with hostage family members in Parliament

Today, Labour leader Keir Starmer and shadow foreign secretary David Lammy met in Parliament with a delegation of family members of some of the Israeli hostages still being held in Gaza by the Hamas terror group since the 7 October attacks.

The delegation, largely made up of young people, is visiting the UK to raise awareness of the 128 hostages still being held by Hamas and other terror groups in Gaza after 228 days. In the meeting, Starmer and Lammy reiterated their calls for the immediate release of the hostages, and for “an immediate ceasefire from all sides”.
