§ Mr. Mike O'Brien
I refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave him on 12 November 2003,Official Report, columns 361–62W. Officials from the British High Commission in Colombo regularly raise this and other human rights issues with the authorities—most recently with the Sri Lankan Ministry of Christian Affairs. However, I have not had discussions with the Government of Sri Lanka specifically on the subject of religious tolerance for Christians in Sri Lanka.
