To ask the Secretary of State for International Development pursuant to the Statement of 29 April 2004,Official Report, column 372WH, on the Occupied Palestinian Territories, on which issues the Government has made representations to the Government of Israel. [172080]

Mr. Rammell

I have been asked to reply.

My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary and my noble Friend the Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean regularly make representations to the Israeli Government about all aspects of the humanitarian situation in the Occupied Territories, including access for humanitarian organisations, as well as settlements and the route of the barrier.

In addition, we have recently made representations about the deaths of British Nationals in the Occupied Territories, extra judicial killings and Israeli public statements implying that Yasser Arafat might be a target.
