To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, pursuant to the Memorandum of Understanding between the Palestinian Authority (PA) and her Department, what discussions her Department has had with the PA on the payment of a salary of 2,600 shekels each month for life to the family of Nimr Mahmoud Ahmed Al-Jamal who carried out the Har Adar terrorist attack on 26 September 2017.
No UK aid is used for payments to Palestinian prisoners or their families. UK financial assistance to the Palestinian Authority is only used to help to pay the salaries of health and education public servants in the West Bank. Only named public servants from a pre-approved EU list are eligible and a robust verification system validates that funds are used for the intended purposes. The UK government strongly condemns all forms of violence and incitement to violence.
