§ Mr. Roper
asked the Lord Privy Seal whether, in the discussions in the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe on the situation in Afghanistan, Her Majesty's Government will take into account and, where possible, support, recommendation No. 889 of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Blaker
We can certainly give broad support to the sentiments expressed in this recommendation. The Government's policies are aimed at ending the Soviet military intervention in Afghanistan and at ensuring that détente is global and reciprocal.
