Q14. Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

asked the Prime Minister what representations Her Majesty's Government have made to the Turkish Government to release political detainees, hold free elections and restore democracy to Turkey.

The Prime Minister

We continue to ensure that the Turkish Government are aware of our concern that their commitments to restore democracy and respect human rights should be given effect rapidly and in full. We welcome General Evren's recent announcement of a timetable for a constitutional referendum and elections. We shall continue to watch developments closely.
