Operation Blue Star

Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN 153430, tabled on 13 June 2018

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, when he plans to put in place an independent public inquiry into the Amritsar massacre in June 1984.

Answered on

18 June 2018

The British Government acknowledges the strength of the feeling in the Sikh community regarding events of 1984. I am confident that the Cabinet Secretary's review of British advice to the Indian Army in advance of the events at Amritsar in 1984 was thorough and the British Government has no plans to establish a further inquiry.
