Thank you for contacting me about the Middle East Peace Process. I have read your concerns and noted them carefully.
I’m afraid that, as a matter of principle and like any other MPs, I don’t sign EDMs which have no real parliamentary function and yet are very expensive to administer. However, I appreciate your concerns about the situation in the region and firmly support the UK’s longstanding position on the Middle East Peace Process.
At this highly sensitive time in the region, the priority now must be to encourage the US, Israelis, Palestinians and partners in the international community to find a means of resuming the dialogue necessary for securing a negotiated settlement.
Once again, thank you for bringing your views to my attention.
With best wishes.
Jonathan Lord MP
Member of Parliament for Woking
