This information is not held centrally and to collate it would incur disproportionate cost. However, we are aware that the then Foreign Secretary, the right Hon. Member for Blackburn (North West) (Mr Straw), met Turkish Cypriot leader Mr Talat in London in July 2004. Mr Talat also met the then Prime Minister, Mr Brown, in London in December 2009. Ministers have frequently met elected leaders of the Turkish Cypriot community when visiting Cyprus.
