The Minister of State for International Development, my Rt. Hon. Friend Mr Duncan, held detailed discussions on issues concerning Gaza with Israeli and Palestinian officials during his visit to the region on 12-15 January. We continue to call on Israel to ease its restrictions, including on import of fuel and medical supplies, on movement of goods to the West Bank and Israel.
