Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 9 (16 Apr 2024)

Baroness Gohir: My Lords, I have proposed Amendment 16 to ensure that all victims have the same right to have a CPS or police decision reviewed.

The Minister stated that now, the Israeli Government want to flood Gaza with aid. Are those just...
