MPs vote to recognise Palestinian State

Many constituents have been in touch over the last few weeks to say how strongly they support the motion put to the House of Commons last night.  I did vote to support the recognition of a Palestinian State and the result of the vote was 274 to 12 in favour of the amended motion:

'That this House believes that the Government should recognise the state of Palestine alongside the state of Israel, as a contribution to securing a negotiated two state solution'.

I do hope this is a small step to securing a negotiated two-state solution.
