Douglas Alexander MP, Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, in response to the situation in Libya, said:

"I welcome the fact that the Prime Minster has now stepped in, accepted that the Foreign Office has got this wrong and seems to be wanting to assert a grip on the situation.

"The Government's first priority must be the safety of British nationals and they and their families want continued action as well as apologies."
