Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Pakistan (14 Gor 2014)

We will continue to press the Pakistani Government to make progress in this area.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Palestinian Authority (14 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: We receive no such reports. The Ministry of Finance publishes expenditure on its website on a monthly basis, including a breakdown by Ministry. The Palestinian Authority Prime Minister and other Ministers have been clear in both public and to us that their payments to families of prisoners are intended to sustain families whose primary breadwinner has been imprisoned. However, no UK money is...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Yemen (10 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: Drone strikes against terrorist targets in Yemen are a matter for the Yemeni and US Governments.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Iraq and Syria ( 8 Gor 2014)

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Iraq: Kurds ( 8 Gor 2014)

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Nuclear Weapons ( 7 Gor 2014)

The P5 dialogue (initiated by the UK in 2009), provides a valuable opportunity for the P5 to exchange...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Pakistan ( 7 Gor 2014)
