Questioning the Prime Minister (29 June 2016)

2016-06-29-PMQSYesterday a former member of my staff was verbally abused and attacked whilst out shopping in London, because of the colour of his skin. He was chased down the road by a lady shouting about how we had ‘voted out’ and that people like him ‘shoot others’ and ‘blow up people. I asked the Prime Minister to reiterate the committment he has already given this morning, to do everything in his power to eradicate this evil hatred and reiterate that leaving the EU should not be used to breed racism but infact the opposite and provide us with an opportunity to be much more international rather than just european.
