Volume 709: debated on Wednesday 1 April 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they will make to the Government of Israel concerning compensation to farmers in Gaza for the loss of 5,000 acres of arable land following incursions by the Israeli Defence Force. [HL2199]

We have made clear our concerns at attacks against civilian infrastructure. Any claim for compensation would be a matter for the individuals concerned (or their relatives), and Israel.
