§ Mr. Bowis
Although my hon. Friend may say that the country is calm, there has been something of a breakdown of law and order there. Is he aware that people in this country are extremely concerned that our citizens in Haiti should be protected, because the present circumstances in that country are not of their own making?
§ Mr. Eggar
I agree with my hon. Friend. Our overriding priority in all consular matters is that we provide an efficient service for British citizens who are in genuine distress or danger through no fault of their own. I assure my hon. Friend that we are aware of the potential risks to the some 50 British citizens in Haiti.
§ Mr. Tam Dalyell (Linlithgow)
On a point of order, Mr. Speaker, on a new question of parliamentary procedure.
