To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the government of Israel’s planned decision to confiscate funds allocated by the Palestinian Authority to Palestinians who the government of Israel claims are involved in attacks against Israelis.
We expect economic and fiscal agreements between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) to continue to be fully implemented, including Israel's obligations under the Oslo Accords and Paris Protocol. We have concerns regarding the nature of the Palestinian system of payments to detainees in Israeli jails and families and lobby the PA on this issue. But this is not a justification for withholding agreed tax revenues. We therefore regret the Israeli decision to withhold some of the tax revenues Israel regularly transfers to the PA and are concerned about the impact this will have on the PA's fiscal stability. Government officials discussed these concerns with Israeli Government Officials in London on 21 February.
