asked Her Majesty's Government:
What is their response to the vandalism of the Armenian genocide monument in Cardiff on Holocaust Memorial Day; and [HL2000]
What action they are taking to protect the Armenian community in the United Kingdom from attacks following the vandalism of the Armenian genocide monument in Cardiff on Holocaust Memorial Day. [HL2002]
The Government deplore attacks on all communities, including the Armenian community. Citizens and visitors to the United Kingdom should be free to live, work and carry on their daily lives without fear of abuse or physical attacks against them and their community and vandalism of their monuments.
The director of the Welsh Centre for International Affairs has advised that the police are investigating and treating the attack on the Cardiff monument as criminal damage. Therefore the Government cannot make any further comments on this particular matter.
