To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of reports that the government of Israel has  issued a ban on the further construction of Palestinian developments near Yatta; and what assessment they have made of the impact of such a ban on any possible peace process in the region.

We are looking into these reports. The UK and international partners will continue to call bilaterally, and in international fora, for Israel to provide a clear, transparent route to construction for Palestinians in Area C. These issues are complex. They will only be resolved via dialogue and agreement between the parties. We will continue to encourage all parties to try and find a sustainable solution through discussion.
