§ Lord Avebury
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether, in regard to the decision to shut down three of Indonesia's most widely-read political weeklies, they have now finished considering how best to underline their concern about this curtailment of press freedom and what action they have decided to take, both alone and with the European Union.
§ The Minister of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Baroness Chalker of Wallasey)
We made our concerns known to the Indonesian authorities at the time of the recent meeting of the Consultative Group for Indonesia in Paris.
