holding answer 20 January 2009

My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary has been in frequent contact with Foreign Minister Livni and Defence Minister Barak.

He has had no contact with officials from the International Criminal Court.

As the Foreign Secretary told the House on 19 January 2008, Hansard, column 501:

"allegations must be closely and speedily investigated. Obviously, the three key parties to that investigation are the United Nations, the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Government of Israel, and we are in touch with all of them."
