Ulster Unionist Peer Lord Empey has said that the British people will not be cowed by any terror threat and will stand together as a United Kingdom.
Speaking from Westminster, Lord Empey said:
“Today’s shocking attack on the Palace of Westminster will be condemned by all right-thinking people.
“My deepest sympathies go out to the families, friends and colleagues of three innocent victims – including an extremely brave police officer – who have lost their lives and I hope that the injured can make a full recovery. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who have been affected.
“History demonstrates that the British people do not frighten easily. This was an attack on the Mother of Parliaments, the seat of our democracy, our nation’s Capital City.
“If anyone thinks that this type of attack will frighten or intimidate our citizens, they are badly mistaken. London has faced terrorism before and life defiantly carried on. The British people will face down any threat that comes our way. Our democracy and our nation will endure, as one United Kingdom.”
