To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what representations he has made to his Iranian counterpart on reports that crowds chanted death to Theresa May and called for the destruction of Israel and America during a rally to mark the 40th anniversary of the Islamic revolution.

Such rhetoric during public rallies is unhelpful, as I said during the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) Oral Questions on 26 February 2019. However, it is not the business of the FCO to interfere in the public debate in other countries and no such representations have been made.
