§ 17. Mr. Home Robertson
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent representations he has made to the Government of the Peoples' Republic of China about the situation in Tibet.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
We take every opportunity to remind the Chinese authorities of our concern over reports of human rights abuses in Tibet and indeed throughout China. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State emphasised this to the Chinese Foreign Minister and General Secretary on his visit to China in April. The Chinese Government are in no doubt of the strong feelings in Britain about the situation in Tibet.
