When a British national is detained overseas, our principal role is to take an interest in their welfare. Consular officials have visited Simon Mann regularly and, where appropriate, raised any concerns with the Zimbabwean Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

I am grateful for the questions raised in both Houses by Henry Bellingham, Peter Bottomley, Ben Wallace, James Arbuthnot and Geoffrey Clifton- Brown asking after the welfare of Simon Mann.

A tribute by the former Prime Minister to the part played by "mercenaries" in the success story of Sierra Leone and providing protection to civilians in Iraq would be appreciated.
