West Bank

Volume 708: debated on Wednesday 11 March 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of how many people work in Israeli-controlled businesses in the West Bank. [HL1773]

We do not have data detailing the number of people working in Israeli-controlled businesses in the West Bank.

We will continue to urge the Israeli Government to freeze all settlement activity and immediately dismantle settlement outposts erected since March 2001. My right honourable friend the Foreign Secretary reinforced this message during his visit in November 2008, and I also did during my visit in December 2008.
