§ Mrs. Spelman
To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what assessment she has made of the number of displaced people in Tora Bora region; and what assistance is being provided to those people. 
§ Hilary Benn
Continuing insecurity in the Tora Bora area means that it is difficult to provide accurate figures. However, UN agencies and NGOs estimate that between 1,000 and 2,000 families have moved from the area to stay with relatives in neighbouring districts, including Jalalabad city.
United Nations agencies, the Red Cross and NGOs are providing the displaced in those districts with food, shelter and other essential supplies.
