To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, with reference to evidence in the Xinjiang Papers submitted to the Uyghur Tribunal, what assessment she has been made of the accuracy of reports that Chinese official Chen Quanguo and his deputies Zhu Hailun and Zhu Changjie played a direct role in commissioning the network of mass internment camps in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.

The evidence submitted to the Uyghur Tribunal adds to the growing body of evidence about the situation that Uyghurs and other minorities are facing in Xinjiang. The UK government has consistently led international efforts to hold China to account for its human rights violations in Xinjiang, including by using our Global Human Rights sanctions regime to impose asset bans and travel freezes on Chinese actors responsible for enforcing China's repressive policies. We will continue to work closely with our international partners in holding China to account for the egregious human rights situation in Xinjiang.
