To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what plans she has to close British embassies in 2007. (126997)

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office continuously reviews the deployment of its resources and aligns them flexibly in line with UK interests to the benefit of the British taxpayer.
