Bishop of Coventry asks Government about policy on humanitarian resettlement of Guantanamo Bay detainees

The Bishop of Coventry received the following written answer on 13th July 2022:

The Lord Bishop of Coventry asked Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to support the humanitarian resettlement of Guantanamo Bay detainees, including by signalling support for countries willing to receive those detainees cleared for transfer.

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.
