To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what meetings he has had with officials from St. Helena in the last two years. (240872)

My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary has not had any meetings with officials from St. Helena in the last two years.

As the Minister responsible for Overseas Territories, I met Councillor William Drabble during the Overseas Territories Consultative Council in October this year, and the then Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield, Heeley (Meg Munn), met Councillor Brian Isaacs at the same event in December 2007. Foreign and Commonwealth Office and other Government officials are in regular contact with St. Helena officials.
