asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations Her Majesty's Government have recently made to the Government of Indonesia concerning the repression of human rights.

I refer the hon. Member to the reply given by my hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh, Pentlands (Mr. Rifkind) to the hon. Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Mr. Wareing) on 28 October. I discussed the whole question of human rights particularly on East Timor with senior Indonesian officials when visiting Jakarta last week.

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on his recent official visit to Indonesia.

My right hon. and learned Friend has not made a recent official visit to Indonesia, but I was there earlier this month to attend a conference on our regional heads of mission in Jakarta. Whilst there, I had useful discussions with Indonesian Ministers and officials.
