The Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my hon. Friend Mr Ellwood, who is sitting alongside me, will be visiting Amman next week, and I am sure that he has heard clearly the points that my hon. Friend Crispin Blunt makes and will raise them with his opposite numbers and colleagues in the Jordanian Government. However, this country can be proud of the overall contribution that is being made. Each country is providing assistance directly, and we are doing so through significant aid, through the vulnerable persons relocation scheme and by providing asylum to those who need it.
