Miss Maynard

asked the Lord Privy Seal what role Her Majesty's Government intend to play in the consultations between the Portuguese Government and concerned Governments, including members of the EEC, on the future of East Timor.

Mr. Newens

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he will propose to members of the EEC in forthcoming consultations on the future of East Timor, at the request of the Portuguese Government, that they press for the recognition of the right of the people of that territory to self determination; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Blaker

I refer the hon. Members to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Crewe (Mrs. Dunwoody) on 1 December.
