Crisis in Yemen

Inquiry status: Concluded

Report published

Scope of the inquiry

The International Development Committee has published its report on the Crisis in Yemen and the report found strong evidence that delivery of aid relief is still undermined by on-going breaches of international humanitarian law and concluded that humanitarian breaches in Yemen need immediate independent investigation.

The Committee also published a letter to the Rt Hon Justine Greening MP, Secretary of State for International Development, setting out serious concerns about the UK Government's approach to the current crisis in Yemen.
