To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what discussions he has had with his counterpart in Israel on the plans that that country has in place to repatriate Israeli nationals from overseas; and whether the UK can learn lessons from that approach.

We have not had discussions on this issue. We are working closely with local authorities, commercial airlines and other diplomatic missions to enable British people to get home. Our consular team is working around the clock to provide support, advice and information. The situation is fast moving, and our advice at this time is for British nationals to secure safe accommodation and to speak to their tour operator, airline and insurance company to discuss the options available to them.
