John Woodcock on Syria and Iraq 'humanitarian crisis'

The "humanitarian crisis has not gone away" in the Middle East and is getting significantly worse, a Labour MP has said.

Speaking of Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS, John Woodcock said it was "in our clear interest to act against them".

He spoke to Jo Coburn on the Daily Politics after David Cameron gave a statement to MPs on UK backing for US airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Iraq, adding he would not rule out participation in similar action in the future.
