Follow this EDM by:


That this House is both alarmed and disappointed by the refusal by the Chinese government to accede to a request from Louise Arbour, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, to grant access for a delegation from the UN to visit Tibet in April in order independently to assess the current working situation; urges the Government to express its grave concern to the Chinese authorities over this decision, to ask why it is not convenient at this time and to press for an early date at which it would be convenient; and further urges the Government actively to support the recent European Parliament's resolution on Tibet wherein it calls for an open and independent inquiry, under the auspices of the United Nations, into the recent riots and repression in Tibet; and urges the Chinese authorities to issue a standing invitation to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and other UN bodies to visit Tibet.
