We welcome today's decision to offer protection to Afghan interpreters who put their lives on the line to support the British forces.

NASA has released this animation showing the movement of storm systems across the south central US on Monday, which triggered tornadoes across Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri.
An EF-5 tornado - the highest possible rating - tore across the city of Moore, Oklahoma, killing 24 people and injuring around 237 others.
The imagery is taken from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's GOES-13 satellite.
Cure the NHS campaigner Julie Bailey said NHS boss Sir David Nicholson had not accepted responsibility for what happened at Stafford and is simply "waiting for his retirement".
"We're disappointed that he's not going immediately to be honest", she said, "this man presided over the biggest disaster in the history of the NHS, he'll be leaving with a huge pension pot and with his knighthood intact but he'll be going eventually and then we can start to cure the NHS."
American Red Cross volunteer Donald Thurmon has told Daybreak that his need to help those affected by the tornado in Oklahoma was instinctive.
He said: "As a volunteer for the red cross you receive training for things of this kind of nature," he added, "it was an automatic thing, get out there and help the people in need."
Ed Miliband will today challenge Google on its tax affairs in Britain, using a speech at an event held by the corporation to say "Google shouldn't be going to extraordinary lengths to avoid paying its taxes."
Shadow business secretary Chuka Umunna told Daybreak:
"The problem is what we see [companies] do is artificially reduce their tax bill, and this is a serious issue because business and society, we're mutually dependent", he added, "if one factor in that relationship doesn't meet its obligations then the whole system can fall apart."
Tornado survivors in Oklahoma have spoken to Daybreak's Lucy Watson about how they sheltered in the bathroom under a mattress to avoid the destruction.
"The three girls were in the bathtub and we put a mattress over our heads, we could hear the house being torn apart and then we felt the wind, and we knew that we were out in the open," Nathan and Amber Kriesel said.
The Kriesel's added that when the tornado had passed their three girls did not have a "scratch on them at all", they added, "as long as us five ended up together in the end, that's all that matters".
Denise Fergus will speak via video link at Jon Venables parole hearing this morning, he was jailed on child pornography charges in 2010.
Denise has called for a re-examination of evidence omitted from the original 1993 trial which could suggest a sexual motive behind her son's killing.
She believes Venables should be in a psychiatric hospital and, if released should lose his anonymity.
Adjusting the results for external factors likely to affect these scores, such as parental education and breast-feeding, researchers found children of women in the iodine-deficient group were significantly more likely to have low scores of verbal IQ, reading accuracy and reading comprehension.
The lower the mother's concentration of iodine, the lower were the average scores for IQ and reading ability in the children.
Rescue workers are nearing the end of the mammoth search for survivors and the dead in Moore.
After nearly 24 hours of searching, Moore's fire chief said he was confident there were no more bodies or survivors in the rubble.
"I'm 98% sure we're good," Gary Bird said at a news conference with the state governor, who had just completed an aerial tour of the disaster zone.
By last night, every damaged home in Moore had been searched at least once, Mr Bird said. His goal was to conduct three searches of each building just to be certain there were no more bodies or survivors.
The fire chief was hopeful that could be completed before nightfall but efforts were being hampered by heavy rain.
No additional survivors or bodies have been found since Monday night, Mr Bird said.
David Bowie has paid tribute to his former bass-player Trevor Bolder as a "major inspiration and a "tremendous guy" after he died following a battle with cancer.
Bowie said: "Trevor was a wonderful musician and a major inspiration for whichever band he was working with. But he was foremostly a tremendous guy, a great man."
Bolder went on to join Uriah Heep five years later and only stopped playing with the band a few months ago, due to his poor health.
A statement from Uriah Heep said: "It is with great sadness that Uriah Heep announce the passing of our friend the amazing Trevor Bolder, who has passed away after his long fight with cancer.
"Trevor was an all-time great, one of the outstanding musicians of his generation, and one of the finest and most influential bass players that Britain ever produced."
