Over the last two weeks, these and many other heroes have helped people flee terror in Afghanistan and find safety in the UK. Thank you to everyone involved in this herculean evacuation effort - 15,000 people liberated, including 2000+ children.
We now need to continue this humane work here at home. I am honoured to have been asked by the Prime Minister to lead the government’s work to welcome Afghan citizens and help them build bright futures in our country.
