Lockerbie: Bombings

Volume 497: debated on Monday 12 October 2009

To ask the Prime Minister pursuant to the answer to the right hon. Member for Richmond, Yorks., of 9 September 2009, Official Report, column 1897W, on Libya, if he will place in the Library a copy of his letter to Colonel Gaddafi of Libya, delivered by the then Foreign Office Minister, the hon. Member for Harlow, during his visit to Tripoli in February 2009; and whether he had a meeting with Colonel Gaddafi at the recent UN General Assembly meeting. (292173)

A copy of the letter has been placed in the Libraries of the House. The letter covered a range of African policy issues which were appropriate and relevant in the light of Colonel Gaddafi’s election as chair of the African Union. It did not cover the issue of Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi’s release. I did not meet Colonel Gaddafi at the UN General Assembly meeting.
