Howlin condemns attack on Jo Cox MP

16 June 2016

Speaking from Liverpool

I would like to condemn in the strongest possible terms, the attack today on Labour MP Jo Cox.

I understand that Ms Cox has played a very active role in Labour’s Remain campaign, and while the circumstances surrounding the shooting have yet to emerge, it is clearly the case that this attack was perpetrated on a democratically elected Member of Parliament who was simply going about the business of representing the interests of her constituents.

Today’s incident has been a shocking one, and my thoughts are with Jo’s family and her Labour Party colleagues.

It is my sincere hope and that of the Irish Labour Party that she makes a full recovery.
