FOREIGN AFFAIRS – LORD LEVY – 11 April 2000

Dr Julian Lewis: While I welcome that question and the Minister's [Peter Hain's] response to it, does the Minister agree that all matters pertaining to Middle East issues are of the greatest sensitivity? Does he agree also that someone who will be taking an increasing role in these matters is the Government's so-called special envoy, Lord Levy? In the circumstances, will the Minister confirm to the House that there is no question of Lord Levy's having been in contact with any foreign intelligence agencies?
