John Spellar – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by John Spellar on 2015-10-23.

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if he will update the travel advice regarding the Punjab on his Department’s website to advise travellers to give serious consideration to not travelling until the situation in that region stabilises.

Mr Hugo Swire

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office reviews travel advice on a regular basis and we have updated the travel advice for India to reflect the situation on the ground in Punjab. Whilst the situation in Punjab has eased since October, calls for further protests continue. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and update travel advice accordingly.
