To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what measures he plans to take in respect of human rights in Algeria; and if he will make a statement. [16584]

We plan to continue expressing these concerns and to encourage the Algerian Government to agree an early date for the visit they have already indicated they accept from the UN Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial Killings.
