HC Deb 13 February 1980 vol 978 c683W
25. Mr. Newens

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will make a statement on the position adopted by the United Kingdom in the United Nations, on the issue of the Indonesian invasion of East Timor.

Mr. Blaker

Under United Kingdom chairmanship the Security Council approved a resolution of 22 December 1975 upholding the right of the East Timorese to self-determination. We supported a similar resolution on 22 April 1976. With the other members of the European Community we have abstained on subsequent General Assembly resolutions.
