    Mrs Bibi was sentenced to death, and only an appeal to the country's highest court saved her from being executed, and the government is trying to stop her leaving the country.

    Mr Farron said: “It’s important that we demonstrate our commitment to religious tolerance and offer unconditional asylum to Asia Bibi and her family.”

    Early day motions are not normally debated, but the number of MPs signing one can send a message to ministers about the strength of Parliamentary feeling..
