PM criticised in debate on Taliban Afghanistan takeover – LIVE

Boris Johnson has faced criticism from a succession of senior Tory MPs including Theresa May over the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan

PM: the West cannot continue in Afghanistan in a military capacity without American support. It is important that we maintain a presence a Kabul airport.  2,052 Afghan nationals have been successfully evacuated.

In a rowdy debate which saw the first full Commons chamber in almost a year and a half, the prime minister was accused by his colleagues of a “catastrophic failure of intelligence”.  Also, allowing the country to be handed back to “the very insurgency we went to defeat in the first place”.

Sir Keir Starmer, speaking in front of full Labour benches for the first time since becoming leader in April last year, opened his speech by praising the MPs across the house who had served in Afghanistan. Addressing veterans more generally, Starmer told them: “Your sacrifice was not in vain. You brought stability, reduced the terrorist threat and enabled progress. We are all proud of what you did.”

The Labour MP Chris Bryant asked whether the resettlement programme would be fast enough.

Home Secretary Priti Patel announced the government will work with international partners and other countries to resettle up to 20,000 Afghan refugees in the UK.
