Israel: Palestinians

Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN HL409, tabled on 10 June 2015

To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they accept the RAND Corporation's calculation of the benefits that would follow a full solution to the conflict between Israel and Palestine; and whether they will discuss those findings with both sides.

Answered on

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has not made an assessment of the findings of RAND Corporation’s calculations. However we do agree that there would be economic benefits for both sides in the event of a two-state solution being achieved, and have made this clear with the parties and will continue to do so.
