To ask the Prime Minister what discussions he has had with the Bermuda Government about bringing the law on consensual sexual relations between adult men in private into line with the legislative position in Britain.

This is primarily a matter for the Government of Bermuda. Nevertheless, I expressed my concerns about this issue to the Premier of Bermuda when we met on 14 July. The Premier indicated that the Bermuda Government may look further at this issue after their general election to be held before May 1994.
