To ask Her Majesty's Government whether Ministers are directly involved in the selection of items that appear on British embassy websites; and whether they have plans to encourage ambassadors to give greater prominence on British embassy websites to issues of direct beneficial interest to the United Kingdom.
The content on our websites overseas is the responsibility of the post, on the authority of the ambassador. Posts work according to broad strategic guidance from officials in London, which, like all other Foreign and Commonwealth Office activity, takes place under the authority of Ministers. Ministers are not normally involved in decisions about particular websites. All communications activity by our diplomatic missions is intended to promote UK interests abroad.
