To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement concerning his role in relation to Kashmir. 
I refer the hon. Member to the replies I gave to my hon. Friends the Members for Peterborough (Mrs. Brinton) and for Luton, North (Mr. Hopkins) on 28 October 1997, Official Report, columns 795–96. My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary made clear to the House on the same day that Britain continues to be willing to help find a solution, but that any offer of help must be acceptable to Pakistan and India.
