Gaza (Humanitarian Situation) (5 Feb 2014)

Lynne Featherstone: ...congratulate all Members who have contributed today. Passions clearly run high, but I doubt whether there is anyone in this Chamber who does not want peace and security for Gaza, the west bank and Israel. The situation in Gaza is untenable. Indeed, the UN has predicted that by 2020, unless we see major changes Gaza will have become unliveable. Obviously, the UK Government are concerned...

Gaza (Humanitarian Situation) (5 Feb 2014)

Lynne Featherstone: ...by the storms has all too clearly revealed the fundamental weakness of relying on imported fuel, as well as the dangers of using interim measures such as cooking oil. The root of those problems is Israeli movement and access restrictions. We understand Israel’s legitimate security concerns, and we have recently seen increases in the number of rockets fired from Gaza into Israel. We...

Gaza (Humanitarian Situation) (5 Feb 2014)

[John Bercow in the Chair] — Occupied Palestinian Territories (5 Jul 2007)

Lynne Featherstone: I welcome the Minister to his place and wish him every success. The Liberal Democrats are fully committed to a two-state solution, as are all parties in the House. Both Israel and Palestine have the right to viable and secure states, recognised internationally and by their neighbours. Recent events show that that remains a distant prospect. The international community has not applied itself...

[John Bercow in the Chair] — Occupied Palestinian Territories (5 Jul 2007)

Lynne Featherstone: No, of course I am not; perhaps I did not explain myself brilliantly. I was saying that because the withdrawal was unilateral and had not been negotiated between the Palestinian authorities and Israel, it offered Hamas the opportunity to claim credit. We also need to realise that Hamas is a movement with many voices, and the voices inside the occupied territories often disagree with the...
