Commenting on the situation in Afghanistan, as the Taliban takes control after the withdrawal of British, US and coalition forces, Luke Pollard MP said:
I am especially concerned about the brilliant female leaders in Afghanistan who have done so much to move the country on in the past twenty years, the people making strides in LGBT rights, the community leaders and those who supported coalition forces, including interpreters and their families. The way they have been dealt with has been shameful and they deserve so much better.”

Though Parliament is being recalled on Wednesday 18 August for a statement from the government on Afghanistan, Luke will be staying in Plymouth to support the community in Plymouth after the tragedy in Keyham last week.
