HC Deb 18 January 1983 vol 35 c89W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make representations to the Turkish Government concerning the repression of human rights in Turkey.

Mr. Hurd

The Government continue to make the Turkish authorities aware of our concern over alleged violations of human rights. The Turkish authorities claim that they are making genuine efforts to investigate allegations and, where these allegations are proven, to punish the culprits. We shall continue to watch developments closely.
