Mr. MacKay

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations have been made to the Chinese Government about the arrest and disappearance of Catholic Bishop Lucas Li Jing-Feng and his assistant; and if he will make a statement.[47643]

Mr. MacShane

The fate and whereabouts of Bishop Lucas Li Jing-Feng and his assistant will be raised at the next session of the UK-China human rights dialogue to be held on 15 May.

We raise our concerns about the treatment of Christians in general, as well as some specific cases, with the Chinese both at our biannual human rights dialogue and at other ministerial and official level meetings with the Chinese.
