Backbench Business — [3rd Allotted Day] — UK Armed Forces in Afghanistan
David Winnick (Walsall North, Labour)

As for whether Afghanistan would be left to the Taliban if we went, we just do not know, but it should be borne in mind that at no stage did the Taliban have unanimous support as such. Before our military intervention, there was already constant military engagement against the Taliban in Afghanistan.
