HC Deb 11 December 2003 vol 415 cc583-4W
Mr. Drew

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent representations he has made to the government of Eritrea concerning persecution of evangelical and Pentecostal Christians. [142603]

Mr. Mullin

I raised this issue most recently with Eritrea's Foreign Minister when he called on me in London on 1 December. On the same day, our ambassador in Asmara raised religious freedom with Eritrea's Director for Europe. Previously, I had raised this issue with the Eritrean ambassador when he called on me on 11 September 2003.
