To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they have made to the government of Israel about reports that travel restrictions have been place on Palestinian mothers with new-born babies who want to travel abroad via Allenby Bridge unless such babies are registered with that government as well as by the authorities in Palestine.

Whilst we have not made representations on these reports, we remain deeply concerned about restrictions on freedom of movement within the West Bank, including to and from Jordan. The UK Government continues to raise our concerns about Israeli restrictions on freedom of movement and access into and out of the Occupied Palestinian Territories with the Israeli authorities.
