British Prisoners in Iran

This week I spoke in a Westminster Hall debate on British prisoners in Iran:

I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way. She is being very generous with her time.​

It seems to me that the Foreign Office has behaved somewhat defensively in relation to this case and others. Given that there are 600,000 dual nationals in Britain, this is not going to be a single issue. Does my hon. Friend agree that the Government need urgently to develop a policy on diplomatic support for dual nationals? Currently, we seem to be responding to the Iranian Government’s appalling policies and behaviour with poor treatment.
