Cyprus

The following is an extract from a closing speech given during the Westminster Hall debate on resolution of the situation in Cyprus by the Minister for Europe, the hon. Member for Aylesbury (Mr Lidington) on 16 November 2010.

We have given particular support to the work of the European Union’s Committee on Missing Persons and we donate to its annual budget. As hon. Members know, the CMP has so far found just under 700 sets of human remains, both Greek and Turkish Cypriot.

[Official Report, 16 November 2010, Vol. 518, c. 232WH.]

Letter of correction from Mr David Lidington:

An error has been identified in the 10th sentence of the fourth paragraph of the closing speech of 16 November 2010.

The correct sentence should have been:

We have given particular support to the work of the United Nations Committee on Missing Persons and we donate to its annual budget. As hon. Members know, the CMP has so far found just under 700 sets of human remains, both Greek and Turkish Cypriot.
