Nepal: Foreign and Home Office Visit

Volume 688: debated on Tuesday 16 January 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by Baroness Scotland of Asthal on 13 December (WA 210-11) regarding the visit by officials from the Home Office and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to Nepal, whether they will place in the Library of the House the note that was sent to the Government of Nepal. [HL924]

The note is a draft record of a meeting that took place in Kathmandu on 22 November. It ascribes certain statements and opinions to Nepalese Ministers who attended the meeting. It would be inappropriate to publish the document before receiving confirmation from them that their position is correctly recorded and that they are content for it to be made public. We intend to publish it subject to receipt of this confirmation.
