To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by the Minister of State for the Middle East on 27 February (HC223509), whether they will make representations to the government of Bahrain about the access of political prisoner Hajer Mansoor Hassan to medical care; and what assessment they have made of reports that Ms Mansoor is being denied access to treatment she is entitled to under the constitution of Bahrain.

The British Embassy and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office continue to follow the case of Ms Mansoor and have raised the issue of access to medical care with the Government of Bahrain at a senior level.

The Government of Bahrain have given categorical assurances that Ms Mansoor has received medical treatment and will continue to receive access to appropriate medical care, as guaranteed by the constitution of Bahrain.

We encourage those with concerns about treatment in detention to report them to the appropriate Bahraini human rights oversight body. We continue to encourage these oversight bodies to carry out swift and thorough investigations into any such concerns or allegations.
