Both the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Mr Hague), have stressed to the National Transitional Council (NTC) the importance of creating an inclusive political system and Libyan society that brings in all sections of the Libyan population, including women. British officials have discussed this with the NTC representative for Women's Issues, Dr Salwa al-Daghaili, and have also engaged with the NTC on plans for building a strong civil society.
