Darren demands formal apology for Amritsar Massacre

MP for Bristol North West, Darren Jones has received a reply from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office after signing a cross party letter, calling on the government to issue a formal apology for British actions in the Jallianwalla Bagh massacre in 1919.

Darren said:

” I’ve now received a reply from the Government following the joint letter I signed seeking a full apology for the massacre in 1919 at Amritsar.

This half-hearted response isn’t good enough – the Government has missed an important opportunity, given the 100 year anniversary, to issue an apology for this appalling event. I will continue to call for an official apology”.

“I“.
