§ Mr. Parry
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, pursuant to his reply to the hon. Member for Liverpool, Scotland Exchange on 25 June, Official Report, c. 204, when he expects the study of the Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister's briefing on the Internal Security Act to be completed.
§ Mr. Rifkind
We have carefully studied the Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister's briefing. We are not at present satisfied that it would be appropriate or helpful to make representations in the case of Thye Siew Heong. However, we fully understand the concern felt by the hon. Member about cases of this nature.
