To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the difficulties of relocating the displaced people still in the Rukban camp, near the frontier of Syria and Jordan; what discussions they have had on that subject; and with whom.

We have been closely following the situation in Rukban camp, including the difficulties of relocating displaced people.

The UK has consistently engaged with the UN, Jordan and the US on Rukban. We have pressed for any movement to be safe, voluntary and informed, and for strong protection safeguards and measures to be part of any relocation plan. We have insisted that humanitarian aid assistance should be provided independently of movements and of any relocation plan. We continue to push the UN and others for a credible plan to deliver aid and sustainable solutions for relocation.
