HL Deb 21 February 2005 vol 669 c161WA
Lord Dykes

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they plan to discuss with the Israeli Government the release of Palestinian detainees, especially those subject to lengthy periods of incarceration, following the ceasefire announced on 8 February. [HL1313]

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean

As part of our on-going discussions with the Israeli Government, we have already discussed with them the release of Palestinian prisoners.

We will continue to follow this issue closely, and discuss it, and other issues discussed on 8 February, with the Government of Israel.
