To ask the Prime Minister, whether he raised the funding of the al-Nusra Front with the Emir of Qatar during his meeting on 29 October 2014; and what agreement was reached at that meeting on co-operation between the UK and Qatar to stop the illegal funding of terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq by Qatari nationals.

I discussed the issue of terrorist financing with His Highness The Emir, and the role that both our countries can play to tackle it. I welcomed the recent legislation to prevent terrorist funding in Qatar by regulating charities that are involved in politics or send money abroad and encouraged swift implementation of this legislation. We agreed to increase cooperation on sharing information on groups of concern.
