Answered on

18 October 2017

We remain extremely concerned about the treatment of Palestinian children detained in Israeli prisons. We funded and facilitated the independent report on Children in Military Custody by leading British lawyers. Ministers and our Ambassador to Israel have strongly urged Israel to implement the recommendations it made. I again raised our concerns over the issue of children in detention with the Israeli authorities during my recent visit between 22-23 August.
