Volume 448: debated on Wednesday 28 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what her latest assessment is of Hamas’s position on meeting the conditions of the international community for donor funding. (80282)

Hamas need to start implementing these principles and make clear the path they intend to take now that they face the responsibilities of government.
