Israel and Palestine: Occupied Territories

Volume 687: debated on Thursday 30 November 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will formally request the International Committee of the Red Cross to reconvene the Conference of High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention to consider how international humanitarian law should be implemented in the occupied Palestinian territories. [HL276]

We have no plans to request this. There have already been emergency special sessions of the Human Rights Council and the UN General Assembly.
