asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether and when they have made representations to China about minorities other than Tibetans who are the victims of discrimination and persecution in China, such as the Muslim Uighur minority in Xinjiang province.
We regularly raise our concerns with the Chinese Government about discrimination and persecution of minority groups in China, including the Uighur community in Xinjiang. Minority rights was a main theme at the most recent round of the UK-China human rights dialogue which took place in Beijing at the end of January, with a focus on the protection of religion and education. British officials also met local authorities in Xinjiang in April 2007.
