HC Deb 10 February 1992 vol 203 c362W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a further statement on the case of Aung San Suu Kyi in Burma.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

We deplore the continuing failure of the Burmese authorities to respond to our own and other international calls for the release of Aung San Suu Kyi, including the United Nations General Assembly resolution on human rights in Burma which we co-sponsored and which drew attention to her plight. With our EC partners we have called on the Burmese authorities to allow Aung San Suu Kyi access to her family and to permit her to receive proper medical attention. We have urged other countries to make similar approaches to the regime in Burma.
