§ Mr. Hooley
asked the Prime Minister whether the question of Israeli settlement on the West Bank of Palestine was discussed at her meeting with the Board of Deputies of British Jews on 27 November; and, if so, what views she expressed on this issue.
§ The Prime Minister
That discussion was private. Our view that Israeli settlements in the occupied territories are illegal and an obstacle to peace is well8W known. We have appealed to the Government of Israel to halt their expansion on several occasions.
