holding answer 3 April 2008

We monitor political developments in China closely, and we will continue to make clear to the Chinese government where we have concerns, as we have done in respect of recent violence in Tibet. We have made clear, however, that we do not support a boycott of any part of the 2008 Olympics. We are determined to continue working with China to make the Olympics a success, as part of China's re-engagement with the world.
