Decision Maker Response

Nick Clegg MP’s response

Sep 2, 2014 — I would just like to let you know that I fully support the campaign to see Ashya King reunited with his parents and my heart goes out to them all.

Like any parent, I think it's awful Ashya is in a hospital on his own.

It seems to me that Mr and Mrs King are in a state of great anguish and have taken this exceptional step of removing their child from hospital and going elsewhere because that's what they think is right for their child.

We can debate whether we think that's right or not but that's clearly their motive and I don't think that kind of motive is the reason why we should be throwing the full force of the law at them.

I can assure you I will add my voice to this campaign and do whatever I can to see Ashya reunited with his family.

Best wishes,

Nick Clegg
