HC Deb 26 January 1979 vol 961 cc268-9W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will raise with the United Nations Commission for Human Rights the need to end genocide being carried out in Eritrea.

Mr. Rowlands

The British Government have continued to make clear to the Ethiopian Government their deep concern over human rights violations in Ethiopia. These were considered at the 34th meeting of the United Nations Human Rights Commission last year and are likely to be considered again at its next meeting in February.
