Volume 638: debated on Wednesday 28 March 2018

Burma

The following is an extract from an answer given by the Minister for Asia and the Pacific to the hon. Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman) following the statement on Burma on 15 March 2018:

On returns, let me first confirm that at a meeting in China in February the Prime Minister made it very clear in private session with her counterparts the concerns we feel about this issue and have tried to get through the UN process. [Official Report, 15 March 2018, Vol. 637, c. 1036.]

Letter of correction from Mr Field:

An error has been identified in the answer given to the hon. Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman).

The correct response should have been:

On returns, let me first confirm that at a meeting in China in February the Prime Minister made it very clear in private session with her counterparts the concerns we feel about human rights issues.
