To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations she has received on the case of Mr Paramjeet Singh, arrested in India on 23 December 2006; and what action she has taken following Paramjeet Singh's arrest. (129232)

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has received a number of letters from hon. Members about Mr. Singh's case.

Officials from our High Commission in New Delhi sought consular access as soon as we were notified of his arrest. We visited Mr. Singh in prison on 30 December 2006 and again on 22 February. We will continue to provide Mr. Singh and his family with appropriate consular assistance.
