Bishop of Coventry asks about Guantanamo Bay closures

The Bishop of Coventry received the following written answer on 12th July 2022:

The Lord Bishop of Coventry asked Her Majesty’s Government what representation they have made to the government of the United States of America to close the detention facilities at Guantanamo Bay.

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: The UK Government’s long-standing position remains that the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay should close. We will continue to engage with the US Government on this issue, as we do on a range of national security issues, and in the context of our joint determination to tackle international terrorism and combat violent extremism.
