To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what representations his Department has made to the Iranian government on the 1991 policy which requires that Baha’i students are blocked from admission to universities or expelled once it becomes known that they are Baha’is; and if he will make a statement.

The Foreign Secretary raised our human rights concerns with the Iranian Government during his visit to Iran on 9-10 December, as did I during Iranian Foreign Minister Aragchi's visit to London in February this year.
