Lord Hylton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they are discussing with China its provision of military weapons to Burma, in the light of internal repression and the persecution of minorities within Burma. [HL2875]

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean

We regularly raise our concerns on Burma with the Chinese authorities but we have not recently raised the issue of the provision of military weapons to Burma with the Chinese.
