The MOD is doing everything it possibly can for those called forward but not evacuated under the ARAP scheme. We are in contact with the majority of them and are continuing to press the Taliban for their safe passage. Some may decide to make their way to third countries – we will provide whatever support we can with their journey. We have arrangements in place for their welfare in third countries and their subsequent journey on to the UK.
