To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the remarks by Lord Strathclyde on 21 March (Official Report, col. 468), how they will ensure that any solution to the crisis in Libya is not externally imposed but belongs to the Libyan people; and what action they are taking to ensure inclusive participation in the preparation of any solution.

The Libyan people have clearly indicated their desire for change. The form that any new political settlement takes is for them to determine for themselves, not for outsiders to impose. The Interim Transitional National Council, which we consider a legitimate interlocutor representing the aspirations of the Libyan people, has committed itself to inclusive and democratic principles and to a more accountable Government in Libya. We support their efforts to prepare for a Government in Libya who embody these principles.
