Lord Jenkins of Putney

asked her Majesty's Government:

What action they have taken in support of Amnesty International's campaign against the disappearance of political prisoners.

Lord Trefgarne

We have been giving strong support to the work of the United Nations Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances, which was established as the result of a British initiative. Our representative on the Human Rights Commission, my noble friend Lord Colville of Culross, is, in his personal capacity, a member of the Group and its current chairman and rapporteur.
