Motion text

That this House expresses serious concerns regarding donations to UK charities that are alleged to be funding construction projects at Neve Daniel, an illegal Israeli settlement in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) of the West Bank; further notes that the Government views Israeli settlements in the OPTs to be contrary to both UK policy and customary international law; believes that existing UK case law demonstrates that activities carried out abroad are not charitable if contrary to public policy; affirms that charity funds should under no circumstances be directed towards the development or maintenance of Israeli settlements in the OPTs; and calls on the Government to liaise with the Charities Commission to investigate this matter.
