To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make representations to the Pakistan Government in response to the death sentence for blasphemy passed upon Ayub Masih on 27 April in a Punjab district court. [41021]

We regularly raise with the Pakistan Government our concerns about the situation of religious minorities in Pakistan. We have discussed this latest case with our EU partners, and will communicate the EU's concerns about the implementation of the blasphemy laws to the Pakistan Government.
