To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they have made to the government of Israel about the risks to peace of unilaterally annexing land in the West Bank.

The Minister for the Middle East and North Africa raised our concerns about unilateral annexation with the Israeli Ambassador to the UK on 4 February. As the Foreign Secretary made clear in his statement on 31 January, we are concerned by reports of possible moves toward annexation of parts of the West Bank by Israel. Any such unilateral moves would be damaging to renewed efforts to re-start peace negotiations, contrary to international law and could not pass unchallenged.
