asked Her Majesty's Government:

What representations they have made to the Government of China about reports by Human Rights Watch of physical abuse, harassment and interference with due legal process in the case of Chen Guangcheng.[HL7214]

The Government included Chen Guangcheng on the individual case list handed to the Chinese authorities at the last round of the UK-China human rights dialogue on 3 July 2006. The case was also raised at the EU-China human rights dialogue in May 2006. The Government will continue to make representations on this case and on our other human rights concerns.
