HC Deb 18 November 1987 vol 122 cc1060-1
14. Mr. Eastham

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the current establishment of the British mission in Suva.

Mr. Eggar

The current United Kingdom based establishment of the British high Commission in Suva is eight.

Mr. Eastham

Is the Minister aware that there is justifiable concern among Indian citizens about the situation in Fiji? Has the high Commissioner received any representations on behalf of the Indian citizens, who are the majority there? Will he also tell us what representations are being made by those Indian citizens?

Mr. Eggar

Of course, our high Commissioner keeps in close touch with members of the Indian community, as he does with the Fijian community. He reports regularly to us on developments in that country.
