§ 19. Lady Olga Maitland
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on current developments in Yugoslavia.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
I refer my hon. Friend to the answer that I gave earlier in reply to the hon. Member for Vauxhall (Ms Hoey).
§ Lady Olga Maitland
Will my right hon. and learned Friend tell the House when the joint British-American reconstruction programme in Sarajevo is due to begin? Does he agree that this came as a result of the very worthwhile talks between President Clinton and our own Prime Minister?
§ Mr. Austin-Walker
What action have the Government taken in respect of the aggressive and oppressive action by Serbia against the people of Kosovo? Will the Minister also comment on recent incursions across the Albanian border by Serbia-Montenegro?
§ Mr. Dickens
In respect of the former Yugoslavia, does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that Great Britain can stand tall? Were we not the first to send troops to that area? Were we not the the first to send medical supplies, food, airborne warning and communication system aircraft and ground monitoring equipment? As far as the world, NATO and the Security Council of the United Nations are concerned, Great Britain has really played its part 100 per cent.
