Parliamentary question: Honduras: Politics and Government

Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Alan Duncan, Minister of State (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) on 21 Jun 2019
Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP
"To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent assessment he has made of the political and security situation in Honduras."
Alan Duncan, Minister of State (Foreign and Commonwealth Office)
"The political and security situation in Honduras remains volatile. In April and May protests against proposed reforms to health and education funding in Tegucigalpa turned violent. The UK updated its travel advice accordingly. More widely, significant numbers of migrants continue to leave the country for the US via Mexico and high levels of intimidation and violence perpetrated against human rights defenders and journalists persist. We engage with the Honduran Government on these issues through its non-resident Embassy in Guatemala City and through its membership of the G16 group of donors, and work closely with civil society organisations in Tegucigalpa."
