To ask Her Majesty's Government what new evidence they used to inform their decision to list Hamas as a terrorist organisation.
9 December 2021
The Government cannot comment on specific intelligence matters.
It has been longstanding policy to keep the list of proscribed organisations under review. Hamas’ listing has been extended to cover the totality of the organisation, following an assessment that the distinction between the military and political wings is artificial and that Hamas is currently concerned in terrorism. Full details can be found at the Explanatory Memorandum to the Order on the legislation.gov.uk website.
