HC Deb 27 July 1982 vol 28 c491W
Mr. Newens

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how the United Kingdom vote was exercised on the issue of Kampuchean representation at the United Nations on the last occasion when the issue was considered; and what is his present policy on this matter.

Mr. Rifkind

When the report of the credentials committee of the thirty-sixth General Assembly of the United Nations was considered, the United Kingdom was one of 77 member States which voted against an amendment challenging the committee's acceptance of the credentials of Democratic Kampuchea. Our policy on the credentials of Cambodian representatives at the United Nations has not changed since then.
