The UK Government has been working to get a reprieve for a man from England, under sentence of death in Pakistan.
Mirza Tahir Hussain will not hang during Ramadan
Mirza Tahir Hussain, 36, from Leeds, has been on death row for 18 years for the murder of a taxi driver.
He was due to die on 1 October, but executions are not carried out during Ramadan which ends on 24 October.
Commons Leader Jack Straw told MPs: "Representations at the very highest level have been made to President Musharraf and to other ministers."
He was replying to Labour's John Battle, (Leeds W), who said: "It is widely rumoured that he will be executed at the end of this month.
"Can I urge you to get the government to step up demands to stop this death sentence?"
He also called on colleagues to get behind the campaign and help save the life of "someone who is unjustly convicted".
The case has won the backing of British and Euro MPs and Amnesty International, who have all urged Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf to quash the death penalty.
Respect Party MP George Galloway intends to fly to Pakistan next week to plead for Mr Hussain's life.
