Nepal: Consular Discussions

Volume 690: debated on Wednesday 21 March 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What matters were discussed at the meeting between the British consulate-general and the Nepalese consulate-general on 12 March in Hong Kong; whether they will ask the British vice-consul to prepare an informal record of the discussions; and whether they will place a copy of such record in the Library of the House.[HL2616]

The meeting was to ascertain whether the Nepalese consulate-general is able to issue a letter confirming that those who claim to have British Overseas citizen status are not eligible to hold Nepalese citizenship or to confirm that a Nepalese citizenship card was issued in error. A record of the meeting will be placed in the Library of the House.
