When I had the opportunity to travel to Qatar with Sir David Amess, he was at the forefront of raising those issues. The points that Bambos Charalambous has made about the Guardian article and the concerns about the LGBT+ people—Sir David was raising those issues at the highest level. There was no holding back; he wanted to be a critical friend because we want Qatar to move forward on those issues, not sweep them under the carpet.
