HC Deb 22 March 2000 vol 346 c599W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list those former(a) Ministers, (b) senior armed forces personnel and (c) heads of state, who have visited the United Kingdom since 1 May 1997, about whose human rights records he received representations prior to their visits. [115545]

Mr. Battle

The FCO does not hold information on the entry of all people into the UK. Therefore, the FCO might not be aware of, for example, a private visit by a former Minister to the UK. To then find out whether the FCO received any representation on human rights grounds over any such visit would also demand a considerable amount of research at disproportionate cost.
