Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that many members of the Tamil community who have absolutely no interest in terrorism and who do not even consider themselves to be members of the LTTE are inhibited from speaking out because they are afraid of being tagged with the terrorist label? At a meeting that my hon. Friend Mr. Davey and I attended recently, there had to be a police presence because those people were so afraid that they would engender enmity from the community by holding that meeting.
