To ask the Prime Minister if he will seek to ensure that the question of the present division of Cyprus is included on the agenda of the Commonwealth conference to take place in Cyprus later this year; and if he will make a statement.

The inter-communal dispute in Cyprus is the subject of intensive negotiations under the auspices of the UN Secretary-General. This process has our full support. It is important not to start new initiatives that may confuse or cut across the UN effort.

To ask the Prime Minister what plans he has (a) to visit northern Cyprus and (b) to meet representatives from northern Cyprus during the Commonwealth conference in Cyprus in October; and if he will make a statement.

There are no such plans; the programme for my visit to the commonwealth heads of Government meeting has not yet been finalised.
