To ask Her Majesty's Government in what ways United Nations Security Council Resolution 1590, requiring "particular attention" to be given to the "protection of vulnerable groups including internally displaced persons" and to "take necessary action to protect civilians under imminent threat of physical violence" has been put into effect in South Kordofan.

In response to the violence in Southern Kordofan, the UN Mission in Sudan set up an area known as the protective perimeter, adjacent to its own compound in Kadugli, where those that had initially been sheltering in churches and hospitals could be provided with humanitarian assistance. This area had provided shelter for an estimated 11,000 internally displaced persons by 20 June.
