To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent reports he has received on the progress of reconciliation in Sri Lanka; and if he will make a statement.

On 20 November, the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission sent their report to the Sri Lankan President. Many hope this report will mark a significant milestone in Sri Lanka’s recovery from conflict. I have called on the Government of Sri Lanka to seize this opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to national reconciliation and accountability. I look forward to the Government of Sri Lanka setting out the steps they will take in response to the report.
