To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on human rights in North Korea. [110411]

The international community is seriously concerned about reports of widespread and continued human rights violations in North Korea.

The resolution was adopted by a majority on 16 April.
