§ Mr. MacDougall
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent discussions he has had with the authorities in Burma regarding the situation of Aung San Suu Kyi. 
§ Mr. Bradshaw
Ministerial contact with the Burmese authorities is limited by the EU Common Position. However an FCO official visited Rangoon from 27 February-1 March where he met both Aung San Suu Kyi and members of the Burmese Government. The Burmese Government are aware of our view that all restrictions on ASSK should be removed. An EU Troika mission is visiting Rangoon from 13–15 March to gauge the latest developments and explain EU policy.
