Nick Brown MP MP for Newcastle upon Tyne East
I attended an event in support of Afghan interpreters who have moved to the UK. During the UK’s involvement in Afghanistan, British forces were supported by civilians local to the conflict. In total around 3500 Afghan civilians played an essential role as interpreters. These people were often exposed to the highest level of danger as they took part in operational patrols and were present on the front line. Their families continue to face danger in the form of reprisals after completion of the British withdrawal in 2014. I am pressing the Government to treat them and their families fairly.
