12 October 2022
Reacting to her election as Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Alicia Kearns MP, said:
“It is an honour to be elected Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, my heartfelt thanks to my colleagues across the House.
“International affairs affect all of our lives, from our country’s security and resilience, to our prosperity. I look forward to building on the committee’s work so far under our previous fantastic Chair, Tom Tugendhat MP.
“In recent years, the geopolitical landscape has seen seismic shifts. The threats we face have transformed from terrorists who behave like states, to states who behave like terrorists. The decisions we make now will have consequences for generations to come. As Chair, I will ensure that we continue to scrutinise the work of the FCDO and help keep our people safe.”
