To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the activities of members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, in particular the Quds Force; and what plans they have to proscribe members of its leadership as terrorist entities.

​We have long expressed our deep concerns about the destabilising activities of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and IRGC Qods Force, including illicit economic activity, and support to militant and proscribed groups around the region. The IRGC as a whole remains subject to EU and UN sanctions; a large number of associated individuals and entities are also designated. We continue to review the list of proscribed groups, but do not routinely comment on consideration of specific organisations.
