Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN HL2239, tabled on 21 October 2014

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is their assessment of the peace-building and reconciliation work of Parents Circle/Bereaved Families Forum in Palestine and Israel; and whether they provide any financial help to it or to its United Kingdom charitable partner Friends of the Bereaved Families Forum.

The work of this organisation, and its emphasis on the importance of reconciliation to achieve peace, appears laudable.

While Foreign and Commonwealth Office officials have met with their partner organisation (the Friends of Bereaved Families Forum), we do not provide financial support to either of the groups.
