§ Mr. Corbyn
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has made to the Government of Turkey concerning the death penalty passed on Abdullah Ocalan; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Ms Quin
We endorse the declaration of 29 June by the EU Presidency, which reflected member states' opposition to capital punishment as a matter of principle, irrespective of the defendant and the offence of which he is convicted. I raised our opposition to capital punishment with senior officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on 7 June, and will do so again during my visit to Turkey this month.
