HC Deb 13 March 1992 vol 205 c683W
Mr. Atkinson

To ask the Prime Minister if he will make a statement on his plan to send a human rights fact-finding team to the People's Republic of China.

The Prime Minister

In January in New York I proposed to Premier Li Peng that a high-level delegation should visit China later this year to look into human rights issues. My right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Surrey, East (Sir G. Howe) has agreed to lead this mission, which will take place later this year.
