To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether any attempt was made to prevent Professor Mordechai Kedar from entering the United Kingdom in order to speak to the Zionist Federation and Sussex Friends of Israel in Brighton on 8 December, in the light of his reported comments in respect of raping the wives and mothers of Hamas militants.
The Home Office does not routinely comment on individual cases. This is because the Home Office has obligations in law to protect this information.
The Government takes very seriously any suggestion that the presence of a particular person in this country might not be conducive to the public good.
When such cases are brought to our attention, the Home Office will investigate and take action where appropriate.
