asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement concerning assistance given by Her Majesty's Government to Peter Glibbery of Shirley in Solihull currently held in custody in Costa Rica.

Since Mr. Glibbery's arrest on 24 April he has received almost weekly consular visits. Representations have been made by HM ambassador on three occasions at a very high level, in addition to regular approaches by his staff at official level, to secure Mr. Glibbery's release or to bring his case to court.

The case was also raised by my right hon. and noble Friend Lady Young on 11 November with the Costa Rican Foreign Minister.
