HC Deb 15 April 1991 vol 189 cc106-7W
Mr. Dalyell

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what information he has about the ill-treatment and torture of Palestinians in Kuwait.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

We continue to express our concern to the Kuwaiti authorities that Palestinians should be treated fairly and in accordance with the law. Our latest reports suggest that the situation is improving. The ICRC, which has been given access to Palestinian detainees, confirms that their conditions have greatly improved. We shall continue to monitor the situation and raise it with the Government of Kuwait whenever necessary.
