To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent discussions he has held with his counterparts in the European Union relating to policy in the Caribbean. [54318]

Mr. Tony Lloyd

My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary has regular meetings with his EU counterparts, including on Caribbean issues. In June these included an EU mandate for the re-negotiation of the Lomé Convention. In February, he and Ministerial colleagues held discussions at the UK/Caribbean Forum in Nassau.
