Motion text

That this House calls on Her Majesty's Government to review the human rights situation in China over the next year, given its decision not to endorse a resolution criticising China's record on human rights during the current session of the United Nations Human Rights Commission in Geneva; notes that in 1997 the EU consensus on a draft resolution collapsed when France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Greece decided not to support a resolution; observes that Her Majesty's Government believes that it can pursue the same objectives through an EU-China human rights dialogue; but believes that Her Majesty's Government should continue to voice its continuing concerns at every appropriate opportunity, including the UN, and should keep its policy constantly under review.
