28. Mr. David Nicholson

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what information he has about the extent of the Afghan refugee burden on Pakistan.

There are some 3 million Afghan refugees in Pakistan. We admire Pakistan's generosity in giving them refuge. We have ourselves provided about £50 million in assistance to these refugees since 1980.
