At Leader of the House Questions Thursday 5 September 2013, Valerie called for an urgent debate on the case of Burmese land rights activist Daw Bawk Ja.
Speaking in the House of Commons, Valerie Said:
“May we have an urgent debate in Government time on Burma, where Daw Bawk Ja, a land rights activist, was arrested in July? In particular, will the Government support the United Nations General Assembly resolution noting that while there has been progress in Burma, there are still human rights and constitutional issues that need to be addressed?”
