33. Mr. Simon Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what encouragement has been given by Her Majesty's Government to the Sri Lankan Government to find a peaceful solution to the Tamil problem.

Mr. Eggar

We have taken every opportunity in our contacts with the Sri Lankan Government, as with Tamil leaders, to urge an end to the violence and settlement of Sri Lanka's problems through negotiation.
