This afternoon, Labour MPs urged the government to take greater action against the threats to the UK posed by the Iranian regime and its agents at an Urgent Question in the House of Commons regarding the situation in Iran.

LFI chair Steve McCabe pushed the government to “curb the activities of agents of the Iranian regime operating in the UK and Europe” as part of a more comprehensive strategy to deal with the threats posed by Tehran.

Likewise, as MI5 reports that there have been up to 10 assassination attempts on UK residents this year by agents of the Iranian regime, Labour’s shadow security minister Holly Lynch urged the government to take action against “those propping up the Iranian regime living in the UK”.
