HC Deb 11 June 2003 vol 406 c920W
Ms Atherton

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will take steps to encourage the diamond industry and government of Botswana to respect the human rights of the Gwi and Gana Bushmen. [118099]

Mr. Rammell

We discuss regularly with the Government of Botswana issues relating to the Basarwa (Bushmen). The Government of Botswana assure us that their policy towards the Basarwa is totally unconnected to the issue of diamond mining.
