HC Deb 27 November 1996 vol 286 c292W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action Her Majesty's Government are taking to urge the Government of the People's Republic of China to ensure the release of Bishop Zeng Jingmu, currently imprisoned in Jiangxi province, and to ensure that he receives adequate medical treatment.

Mr. Hanley

We have not raised the specific case of Bishop Zeng Jingmu with the Chinese, but we and our EU partners continue to press the Chinese authorities to respect fundamental rights, such as religious freedom, and to respect international standards on the treatment of prisoners.
