MP calls for Ashya to be reunited with his parents

Mike Hancock, MP for Portsmouth South has commented on the case of Ashya King who is from Southsea which is in his constituency.

Mike Hancock said: “I have contacted the Chief Constable of Hampshire Police and the Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner asking them to ensure that the case is looked at very sympathetically as far as they are able to and Ashya is reunited with his parents as quickly as possible.

"While there might have been some uncertainty initially it has become clear that his parents have been acting in his best interests to try and get him the best possible medical treatment.

"I am also contacting Southampton Hospital and the NHS to ask them to look again at the options for his treatment and that they consider the treatments that Ashya's parents want for him.”
