The government it committed to ensuring that those Afghan nationals who were relocated under the Afghan Relocations and Assistance Policy and during the recent evacuation are well supported as they start their new lives in the UK. This cross-government effort, Op WARM WELCOME, is being led by the Minister for Afghan Resettlements, Victoria Atkins MP, and I liaise regularly with both her and other Ministerial colleagues on this subject, including on what support Defence can provide to those individuals who served alongside our Armed Forces.
