To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs
(1) whether local community leaders in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, have made representations to the British embassy in Afghanistan regarding the non-payment of compensation for poppy eradication;
(2) whether cheques drawn on a British Government funded account at a local bank in Lashkar Gar, Afghanistan have been returned unpaid due to insufficient funds.
I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave him today (UIN 62477).
