Volume 475: debated on Thursday 15 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent representations he has received from the Polisario Front. (204951)

My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary has received representations from consultants working on behalf of the Polisario. He reiterated the UK's concerns over the conflict in Western Sahara, and our hope that ongoing negotiations will achieve a just, lasting and mutually acceptable political solution, which will provide for the self determination of the people of Western Sahara. In addition, officials from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office have received Polisario representatives for discussions on Western Sahara.
