§ Mr. Simmonds
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (1) if he will make a statement on the level of threat faced by British missions and their staff in South East Asia following the Australian embassy bombings in Jakarta; 
(2) if he will make a statement on the security arrangements in place for British Missions and their staff in South East Asia; and whether those arrangements have been reviewed following the Australian embassy bombings in Jakarta. 
§ Mr. Rammell
We take the security of all our staff, both overseas and in the UK, extremely seriously. The level of threat faced by British Missions in South East Asia and other parts of the world is high. Security arrangements for all our Posts are regularly reviewed. We have implemented a number of measures to enhance the security of our Missions in South East Asia in recent years, and have reviewed them again following the bombing outside the Australian Embassy.
