§ Lord Hylton
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What is their response to the Paris Declaration of the International Commission of Jurists dated 10 November 2004; and in particular, whether they are considering de-listing the People's Mojahedin Organisation of Iran as a terrorist group. [HL815]
§ The Minister of State, Home Office (Baroness Scotland of Asthal)
As a matter of policy, the Government do not comment on whether a particular organisation is being considered for proscription or de-proscription under Section 3 of the Terrorism Act 2000. Such decisions are taken only after the most careful consideration and on the basis of the best possible security advice.
