§ Lord Bottomley
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What steps they are taking to encourage the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association in its work of bringing together Parliamentarians within the Commonwealth who share a community of interest, respect for the rules of law and a commitment to promote parliamentary democracy.
§ Baroness Young
We maintain close contact with the United Kingdom Branch of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association and assist it with the regular exchange of visits that it promotes between Commonwealth Parliamentarians. We support it by providing an annual grant-in-aid.
