HC Deb 01 July 1987 vol 118 c107W
Mr. Vaz

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

Sir Geoffrey Howe

I. expressed our deep concern about the military coup in Fiji on 14 May, calling for a return to parliamentary democracy. The Governor-General has assumed sole executive authority in Fiji. We have maintained normal contact with him through our high commissioner in Suva. Our normal commercial and trading relations continue as does our aid programme.
