HC Deb 07 October 2003 vol 411 c101W
18. Vera Baird:

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what further measures he will take against the military Government in Burma to seek to compel them to release the NLD leadership and to take steps towards democracy. [132015]

Mr. Mike O'Brien:

We are working closely with our EU and Asian partners and in the UN to bring pressure to bear on the regime for political change in Burma. We are considering carefully with our EU partners what further targeted measures could be taken if the Burmese regime does not fully release the NLD leadership and take genuine steps towards democracy.
