§ Mr. Dalyell
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, pursuant to his letter of 28 July to the hon. Member for Linlithgow, what further research and consultation with the Pitcairn islanders he has undertaken on Henderson Island; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Goodlad
Further research has been carried out by the governor's office in Wellington. On the basis of this we are now drafting a discussion document, in consultation with interested non-governmental offices. This will be presented to the Pitcairn islanders when a British official next visits Pitcairn, and can be discussed face to face.
