Volume 494: debated on Thursday 25 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make representations at EU level for a prohibition on the supply to Iran of technology to inspect, monitor and filter internet content; and if he will make a statement. (282196)
