HC Deb 16 May 1990 vol 172 cc409-10W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many reports of breaches of human rights in Palestine Her Majesty's Government have received in the past 12 months; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Waldegrave

We receive frequent reports of human rights abuses in the occupied territories. We regularly take up individual cases with the Israeli authorities on both a national and Community basis. The Israelis are well aware of our view that they should administer the occupied territories in accordance with their obligations under international law.
