§ Mr. Dismore
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the outcome of the elections for the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus Parliament on 14 December. 
§ Mr. MacShane
My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary issued a press statement the day after the elections in northern Cyprus. A copy of the statement is available on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website: www.fco.gov.uk/policy/news/foreign-secretary.
We remain committed to seeking a comprehensive, just and lasting settlement in Cyprus on the basis of the UN plan. We urge all concerned to seize the opportunity presented by this election outcome. What is now required is a clear demonstration of political willingness 1110W to build on this result and to resume substantive settlement negotiations on the basis of the UN Secretary General's proposals as soon as possible.
