§ 21. Mr. Edwards
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on Britain's relations with Kuwait. 
§ Mr. Fatchett
Our relations with Kuwait are very good. I am visiting Kuwait on 11 and 12 March to take forward discussions on a wide range of issues, including our trade interests and close defence co-operation. We are particularly grateful to the Kuwaiti government and people for the generous welcome and political support shown to our forces stationed there.
