Bangladesh: Politics and Government

Volume 471: debated on Tuesday 29 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment he has made of the progress of the interim Government of Bangladesh towards lifting restrictions on political activities in Bangladesh. (182102)

We support the restoration of full democratic processes in Bangladesh at the earliest opportunity. We believe that the lifting of the ban on indoor political activities was an important step towards this. We would like to see a dialogue between the caretaker Government and the political parties that includes discussion of further moves towards lifting the remaining restrictions.
