His Majesty’s Government does not get involved in the independent travel decisions of parliamentarians who are not a member of the government. As is standard practice, the FCDO provided a short background note setting out HMG’s position on Taiwan and facilitated logistical contact between the former Prime Minister’s accompanying protection team and the Taiwanese authorities. No official support was provided on the visit programme.
