Volume 715: debated on Wednesday 9 December 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they plan to draft a resolution for the United Nations Security Council about existing and additional Israeli settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, to recognise and give membership to Palestinian lands and to set dates for implementation. [HL405]

The Government have no plans to draft such a UN Security Council resolution. We continue to support efforts to kick-start urgent negotiations which will lead to the creation of a viable Palestinian state alongside a secure Israel.
