Mr. Conway

asked the Prime Minister what representations she has received from the British Korean Veterans Association asking her to visit the graves of Kings Shropshire Light Infantrymen buried in the Pusan military cemetery, South Korea.

The Prime Minister

To date I have received none.

Mr. Ron Brown

asked the Prime Minister what recent representations Her Majesty's Government have received about the suppression of trade union and civil rights in South Korea; and if she will make a statement about the visit to Britain by the President of South Korea, Chun Du Hwan.

The Prime Minister

Representations have recently been received from Amnesty International about human rights issues in the Republic of Korea.

The visit by President Chun Du Hwan is the first by a Head of State of the Republic of Korea and provides a welcome opportunity to exchange views on a wide range of topics.
