HL Deb 02 November 1998 vol 594 cc14-5WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will detail the provisions in the Charter of the United Nations, or elsewhere in international law, under which an Israeli attack on Iran, such as has recently been advocated in the Israeli Knesset, might be lawful. [HL3450]

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean

It is for the Government of Israel to justify any military action that they might take.
