28. Mr. Galloway

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions he has had with his counterpart in Bahrain about the workings of the state security law there; and if he will make a statement. [13981]

Mr. Hanley

We have friendly relations with Bahrain and our frequent discussions cover a wide range of issues. The Government of Bahrain are aware of our view that legal proceedings, including under the security law, should be in accordance with international standards.
