To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent discussions he has had with his ministerial colleagues on the monitoring of the use of tear gas and protest-related injuries in Bahrain; and if he will make a statement.

We have previously made clear to the Bahraini authorities our concerns about the indiscriminate use of tear gas and the need to exercise all possible restraint when handling public order situations; but I have not had any specific conversations with my ministerial colleagues about the use of tear gas and protest-related injuries in Bahrain. We do continue to monitor the situation very closely and take note of the concerns raised by Human Rights Non-Governmental Organisations.
