A delegation of British MPs is visiting Norfolk Island this week at the invitation of the opponents of the Australian take-over of the island.
Norfolk's limited self government was removed a year ago by Canberra and replaced last month by a regional council.
The changes have infuriated many on Norfolk Island who have been battling for more than a year to change the minds of Australian politicians.
The five MPs were invited by to Norfolk by the People for Democracy group, which made a plea at Westminster last year for Britain not to forget about the island.
People for Democracy claim the process to remove self-government was based on misleading and flawed data and was opposed by most Norfolk Islanders.
It said Australia merely had an administrative role and no right to assume the level of control it has.
