§ Mr. Cox
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, pursuant to the meeting of the Council of Ministers in May, what further developments were reported in respect of the release from prison of four Turkish parliamentarians. 
§ Ms Quin
I will write to my hon. Friend shortly. We have repeatedly made it clear to the Turkish authorities that the conviction of elected politicians for the non-violent expression of their opinions can only damage Turkey's international standing.
