HC Deb 24 February 1986 vol 92 c445W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on Her Majesty's Government's relations with the new administration in Haiti.

Mr. Eggar

We have no diplomatic staff resident in Haiti and Her Majesty's ambassador to the country resides in Jamaica. A member of his staff was in Haiti from 30 January until 20 February, when he was in close contact with the British community. He had a brief courtesy meeting with the newly appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs on 13 February in company with our locally appointed Haitian vice-consul.
