Our foreign policy towards Cuba is that Ministers will not visit Cuba. The Minister will be aware that this month the Canadians sent their Foreign Minister, thus meaning that the Heads of State or Ministers of 16 countries have visited Cuba. Would the Minister be willing to meet a group of us who think that our current policy is wrong for the Cuban people and wrong for Britain, too?

Is the role of MP's to represent the will of the people!!... this continued pro USA policy stance is against the will of all those I know and only serves to hurt those people I know and care about in Cuba.

It also serves to alienate us from any future co-operation and commerce.
