Like many others, I utterly condemn the missile attack on Riyadh. I would argue that arms should not be supplied by anyone to any of the side in the conflict, given the humanitarian catastrophe, but may I press the Minister on access to the airport and to Hodeidah?

Is there any reason why Sana’a airport should not be reopened to UN and humanitarian flights within the next 24 hours, for example?
