Parliamentarians write to Prime Minister on annexation of Occupied Palestinian Territory

A cross-party group of 108 Parliamentarians have written to Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister, to demand that he acts robustly to any Israeli annexation of Occupied Palestinian Territory.

In a letter, sent from the Britain-Palestine All-Party Parliamentary Group, the Parliamentarians - including a number of MPs, writing in an independent capacity, that CMEC has engaged closely with - call for the Government to respond to annexation of territory by Israel in a way that demonstrates that Britain is willing to firmly stand up for the rules-based international order.

*Since the letter was published, the following MPs have now signed: 

Karen Buck MP

Rosie Duffield MP

Sharon Hodgson MP

Liz Kendall MP

Anna McMorrin MP

Mel Onn MP

Lucy Powell MP

The total of parliamentarians who have now signed stands at 115.
