To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they have made to the government of Israel about the fears expressed by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East concerning the food supply for Gaza from June onwards; and about the approval for the taking of new Palestinian land for the Hawara and Al-Aroub by-passes in the Occupied West Bank.

The UK remains concerned about the humanitarian situation in Gaza. Our Embassy in Tel Aviv has carried out demarches on the Israel authorities to go further in easing movement and access restrictions on Gaza. We would also oppose any steps to take further Palestinian land. We regularly raise our concerns on the issue of settlements with the Government of Israel and urge it to reverse its policy of settlement expansion.
