That this House notes with deep regret the murder of former Pakistani Prime Minister and Leader of the Pakistan People's Party, Benazir Bhutto, on 27th December; recognises that Benazir Bhutto was committed to democracy in Pakistan; further notes that any investigation into her death must be independent and thorough; and calls upon the Government through its membership of the United Nations Security Council to press for a formal UN investigation into Benazir Bhutto's murder similar to the inquiry into the murder of the former Lebanese Prime Minister, Rafik Hariri.
