To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, with reference to reports that imprisoned Bahraini opposition leader, Hasan Mushaima, has developed serious symptoms due to diabetes, what urgent representations the Government plans to make to its Bahraini counterparts on ensuring the immediate provision of adequate medical care to Hasan Mushaima.

We continue to monitor and raise the case of Hassan Mushaima and others, as necessary, with the Bahraini Government. The Government of Bahrain has been clear that access to medical care for those in detention is provided in line with the Constitution of Bahrain. We welcome those assurances. We encourage those with concerns about treatment in detention to raise the matter with the Bahraini human rights oversight bodies.
