Her Majesty's Government, whether following the High Court ruling that pursuing boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel is legal, they will change their guidance governing investment by local government pension schemes.

The Government is strongly opposed to boycotts, which undermine its work to support the peace process and achieve a negotiated solution. We have received permission to appeal the judgement on the guidance to administering authorities on preparing an investment strategy statement for Local Government Pension Scheme funds, and will submit an appeal shortly. Pending the outcome of the appeal we will amend the guidance.
