§ Mr. Dalyell
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what response he has made 1403W to former President Mandela's request that Mr. Abdul Bassett al-Megrahi be moved to a prison in a Muslim country. 
§ Mr. Mike O'Brien
We are aware from press reports of former President Mandela's call for Mr Al-Megrahi to be transferred to a prison in a Muslim country. We have not received a formal request from him.
Libya agreed to hand over suspects for trial in a third country, and if convicted, to their imprisonment in Scotland. This agreement stands with regard to Mr. Al-Megrahi's imprisonment.
