To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether his Department has had discussions with the Quartet representative on the designation by the US administration of the charity Interpal as a terrorist organisation. (284463)

We have not discussed Interpal with the quartet representative.

Our officials are in discussion with their US counterparts about how to facilitate legitimate charitable work while protecting against any risk of funds being misused by terrorists. These discussions have included reference to the Interpal's status in the US as a designated organisation.
