To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when he expects to visit the United States of America; and how he plans to explain British policy and promote British interests there.

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs expects to visit the United States soon for wide-ranging discussions with members of the United States Government.

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs on how many occasions since May 1979 Her Majesty's Government have conveyed reservations to the United States Government concerning (a) United States internal human rights policies and (b) United States military interventions in sovereign states.

It is not our practice to convey formal reservations to the United States Government in these contexts.
