Lords
To ask Her Majesty’s Government what representations they have made to the government of Egypt about the new law on civic associations and its implications for civic society in that country, including non-governmental organisations.
Answered on: 23 December 2016

Following the Egyptian Parliament's passing of the draft Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO) Law for the second time on 29 November, we have frequently raised our concerns with the Egyptian authorities. The Parliamentary Under Secretary for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my Hon. Friend the Member for Bournemouth East (Mr Ellwood) expressed our concern with the draft law in a statement he made on 1 December.
