Bishop of Durham asks whether the government will condemn threats against British-Iranian journalists by Iran

The Bishop of Durham asked a question on threats made against journalists at Iran International during a debate on protesters in Iran on 9th November 2022:

The Lord Bishop of Durham: To follow up on that, it was reported earlier this week that the lives of two British-Iranian journalists were at risk due to lethal threats from Iran following their coverage of the protests for the news channel Iran International. Will the Government take steps to condemn these threats and encourage the freedom of the press in Iran?

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon (Con): My Lords, we will and I do so now.
