It is a pity to ask all those questions without referencing the 100-plus hostages who are still being held by Hamas, who brutally slaughtered the population deliberately rather than as a by-product of war. The hon. Gentleman asks a number of questions.

The numbers are actually very small indeed. He will know that his latter question is one for the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.
