[On April 13, 2018 Mrs. Kerry McCarthy (Bristol East) asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, whether he has provided consular assistance to the British human rights campaigner Andy Hall, who has been sentenced for defamation in Thailand]

[On April 19, 2018. Mr. Mark Field answered:] Mr Hall has not recently requested consular assistance. However, we have been active in supporting him in relation to his work promoting human rights.

We also support full implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
