I write to you on behalf of my constituents who have raised the issue of the Bedouin village of Umm al-Hiran in the South of Israel which is facing demolition to make way for new settlements. This is a huge concern to me, and to my constituents. A basic injustice is being done. We must use our voice to stop it.

I would be most grateful if you could advise me whether your office has been in contact with the Israeli government regarding this matter, and what action our government is taking to ensure that the present population of Bedouin have their rights respected.

I look forward to hearing from you shortly.
