During questions to the Foreign Secretary on the work of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Keith raised bilateral relations with India, and the UK-India year of culture.
Keith asked Foreign Office Minister Alok Sharma:
This year marks the UK-India year of culture, so will the Minister set out the Government’s plans to celebrate this important event?
Alok Sharma replied:
A range of events are coming up this year to celebrate the year of culture. The right hon. Gentleman will know that we were visited by Finance Minister Jaitley in February, showing the strength of our relationship. He visited Buckingham Palace, where Her Majesty the Queen hosted an event celebrating the year of culture.
