HC Deb 20 December 1990 vol 183 c278W
Mr. Ernie Ross

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action he intends taking as a state signatory to the fourth Geneva convention if the Israeli Government proceed with their declared intention to deport members of the Palestinian civilian population of the west bank and Gaza who are protected persons under the provisions of the fourth Geneva convention.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

We have made it clear that any such deportations would violate international law. We urge the Israeli Government not to proceed with them.
