asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by Lord Triesman on 14 June (WA 267) regarding Nepalese citizenship law, and having regard to paragraph 4.86(3) of the Companion to the Standing Orders (Resolution on ministerial accountability), why they will not place the British record of the discussions, which has been available on the internet since 10 June, in the Library of the House; and whether they will now place that record in the Library of the House.

We requested the Nepalese authorities formally to agree our record of the meeting. This agreement has not been forthcoming. We therefore informed the Nepalese Ministry of Foreign Affairs on 14 June that we assume its agreement of our record as a true record of the discussions which took place on 22 November 2006. That record has now been placed in the Library of the House.
