Last week

Tuesday, April 24, anniversary of the start of the Armenian Genocide, chaired a meeting to hear from expert historians led by Christopher Walker in the Grand Committee Room. The proceedings are to be published, and will contribute towards the campaign for official recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the Government.

Then, a meeting of the All-Party Burma Group, and after that to Mr Speaker's for the announcement of the Mr Speaker Abbott Award (of which I'm one of the judges). This year's award went to Akbar Ganji from Iran, with a special posthumous award to Anna Politkovskaya.

Thursday, attended a morning FCO roundtable on Afghanistan.

Today, had a long conversation with Maurice in NZ on Skype.
