HYNDBURN MP Graham Jones discussed Afghanistan in Parliament earlier this week.

Labour MP Mr Jones asked Foreign Secretary Iain Duncan Smith what discussions he had had with his Afghan counterpart about the impeachment of ministers by the Afghan Parliament.

Minister of State Hugh Robertson replied: “The use of the power to impeach ministers, as set out in the Afghan constitution, is a matter for the Afghan Parliament to decide.

“It is not an issue that the UK has raised with the Afghan government.”
