HC Deb 02 December 1996 vol 286 c497W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action Her Majesty's Government are taking to encourage the Government of India to amend regulations extending the Christian Dalit reservations. [5723]

Dr. Liam Fox

The Government frequently restate their view that discrimination on religious grounds is unacceptable. The issue of reservations is an internal matter for the Government of India. We understand consideration is already being given to the extension of reservations to Dalit Christians.
