Guantanamo Bay: Detainees

Volume 488: debated on Friday 27 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether US officials have acceded to the request to return Mr. Shaker Aamer to the UK; and if he will make a statement. (256382)

We maintain a close dialogue with the US regarding Mr. Aamer's case and his welfare. The US government have not agreed to his release and return to the UK. We have made clear in recent contacts with the new administration that our request for his release and return stands should their position have changed.
