My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary spoke with the Israeli Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, and Tzipi Livni herself on 15 December 2009. He also met the Israeli ambassador Ron Prosor. During these discussions he set out his view that Israeli leaders-like leaders from other countries-must be able to visit and have a proper dialogue with the Government.

The Government are looking urgently at ways in which the UK system might be changed in order to avoid this sort of situation arising again.
