Question to the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office:

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what representations they have made to the government of Iran to end the use there of capital punishment on children.

This question was answered on 9th March 2015

The British Government opposes the use of the death penalty in all circumstances, especially in the case of minors. We have made our position clear to the Iranian government, both privately and in public. During our submission to the UN Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review of Iran’s human rights record on 31 October 2014, the Government recommended that Iran put an immediate moratorium on the use of the death penalty for minors.
