That this House notes the many representations to the Foreign Secretary made by British Sikhs on behalf of Paramjit Singh, a British citizen; is dismayed by the continuing detention of Paramjit and the second postponement of his trial; condemns the Punjab police for delaying access by the British High Commission to Paramjit amid the concerns of his family for his safety; calls on the Government to increase its efforts to ensure an expeditious and fair trial; and, in the meantime, further calls on the Government to take steps to ensure Paramjit's health and welfare is not compromised by ill-treatment while he is in custody.
