asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement upon the recent visit of the Minister of State, the hon. Member for Shoreham (Mr. Luce), to Kuwait.

Between 31 March and 2 April, I visited Kuwait as part of a Gulf tour which also included Qatar. I had a very useful round of discussions with Kuwaiti Ministers, including the Crown Prince and Prime Minister, Sheikh Sa'ad. I was able to review the satisfactory state of our bilateral relations and exchange views on major international issues, including the Iran-Iraq conflict, and Lebanon and the Arab-Israel dispute.
