That this House notes with concern that the Government continues to sanction payments from British taxpayers to convicted Palestinian criminals serving their sentences in Israeli prisons; further notes that the Department for International Development made payments to the Word Bank's Palestinian Development Plan (PRDP) Trust Fund, that this fund contributed to the Palestinian Authority's Ministry of Prisoners Affairs which provided salaries to prisoners, and that the payments continue through a cash transfer from the Palestinian Authority's PROP fund to the PLO; acknowledges the efforts of Zionist Federation UK's No Money for Murder campaign that highlights evidence gathered by the International Development Select Committee (IDC) in 2014, which confirms that payments are made on a scale of 1,400 NIS, £250 a month, for time served up to three years to over 12,000 NIS, £2,100 a month, for time served up to 30 years; notes that the highest salaries are comparable to starting wages for teachers and nurses in the UK; and calls on the Government to stop these payments from the International Development budget that both encourage and allow people to profit from murder.
