To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what discussions he has had with the Palestinian authorities on water quality in Gaza.
24 February 2017
Our Consulate General in Jerusalem frequently raises this issue with the Palestinian Water Authority, a body of the Palestinian Authority. We have serious concerns about the quality of water in Gaza, and note that the World Health Organisation has assessed that 90-95% of water in Gaza is undrinkable. UK technical assistance has aided the feasibility study of a proposed Gaza desalinisation plant.
