HC Deb 09 May 2002 vol 385 c308W
Mr. Lyons

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations have been made to Saudi Arabia over the case of Mr. Alexander Mitchell. [54126]

Mr. Bradshaw

FCO Ministers and officials have made repeated representations about Mr. Mitchell's case from the outset, including at the highest levels. My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister has made representations on numerous occasions directly with the Saudis. We will continue to do all we can for Mr. Mitchell and the other detained British nationals accused of involvement in bombings in Saudi Arabia.
