Volume 457: debated on Friday 23 February 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations she has made to the Israeli Government on the construction work on the damaged walkway in the Old City of Jerusalem. (122490)

We are concerned at the ongoing work near Haram Al Sharif/Temple Mount. It is important that any Israeli action in this holy site is taken with the agreement of all parties concerned and in a way that respects the status quo. My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary discussed this most recently with Israeli Foreign Minister Livni on 20 February.
