We remain very concerned about all our dual nationals detained in Iran. We continue to raise their cases with the Iranian Government at every opportunity, as the Minister for the Middle East did with the Deputy Foreign Minister in Tehran recently. We will make decisions in line with what we believe will produce the best outcomes in their cases. I refer the noble Lord to the Foreign Secretary’s comments in the House of Commons on 4 September.
