To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what representations he has made to his Spanish counterpart on the violence that occurred during the Catalan independence referendum; and if he will make a statement.
Answer (Sir Alan Duncan)
The Prime Minister discussed the situation in Catalonia with the Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy on 17 October and expressed the UK's support for the rule of law and respect for the Spanish constitution. This followed a meeting between myself and the Spanish Ambassador Carlos Bastarreche on 11 October, after which I released a public statement.
