HC Deb 23 February 1993 vol 219 c513W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action has been taken to call for an investigation into the whereabouts of AIDS-infected Burmese prostitutes who have disappeared.

Mr. Goodlad

We are aware of allegations that HIV-positive Burmese prostitutes returned from Thailand have disappeared but we have seen no evidence to support these allegations. According to the Burmese authorities, prostitutes who are found to be HIV-positive are counselled, and treated for sexually transmitted diseases if appropriate, before being returned to their families.
