The situation in Afghanistan is shocking but hardly surprising. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the debate in Westminster yesterday. However, I have elaborated my thoughts on Afghanistan in the attached statement.
It is vital that given the ongoing circumstances in Afghanistan, our service personnel and veterans are assured that they are not forgotten and that their personal sacrifices were not in vain. I am pleased that the Minister for Veterans is conscious of this and I have attached his letter which gives details of the available support.
