To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if he will make it his policy to support an independent, international inquiry, with Burmese participation, into alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity in Burma.

We have made clear to the Burmese government our strong concerns over the human rights situation in the country, particularly in Rakhine state and the ethnic border regions. Our priority is to seek an end to all human rights violations. We have been firm that as part of this process the culture of impunity must be properly tackled, which we believe is best achieved through a clear, independent and transparent investigative and prosecutorial process that meets international standards.
