To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent attempts he has made to establish direct contacts with individuals within the Iranian regime with potential responsibility for the detention and treatment of Nazanin Zaghari Ratcliffe following the recent Iranian elections.

The permanent release of all arbitrarily detained dual nationals in Iran and their return to their families in the UK remains our top priority. Since the Iranian elections we have continued to raise the detention and treatment of Nazanin Zaghari Ratcliffe and other UK dual nationals at all appropriate levels with Iran. The Foreign Secretary raised this with Foreign Minister Zarif on 16 March and our Ambassador to Iran has consistently raised this with the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
