Gambia: Politics and Government

Volume 493: debated on Wednesday 3 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when the next dialogue meeting between the Government of the Gambia and the EU will be held; and whether he plans to raise the case of David and Fiona Fulton at that meeting. (275465)

The next EU-Gambia meeting is scheduled for 10 June 2009. This meeting will not provide an opportunity for our high commissioner to raise the Fultons' case as he will be acting as the sole representative of the EU presidency on EU-Gambia matters. Consular staff continue to monitor the Fultons' case and make regular visits. Our high commissioner will make representations directly to the Gambian authorities where appropriate.
