Select Committee on Foreign Affairs Written Evidence

Letter to the Parliamentary and Devolution Team, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, from the Clerk of the Committee

  Members who visited Turkey last week were briefed by Turkish interlocutors on their concerns about plans for the referendum required by the constitution of Iraq to be held later this year in Kirkuk on its future status.

  The Committee wishes to receive a note from the FCO on the background to the referendum and on the policy of the United Kingdom as to the arrangements for holding it, together with any other relevant observations the FCO may care to make on the future of northern Iraq and the Kurdish question.

  The Committee hopes to receive the note by 19 February.
