HL Deb 28 February 1984 vol 448 c1270WA
Lord Drumalbyn

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will continue to support the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) in the Sinai, when the present commitment expires at the end of March.

The Minister of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Baroness Young)

The Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) have been informed that the United Kingdom will continue to provide a contingent in the Sinai at its present level. This will be for one year initially but, as things stand, the MFO may look forward to our presence for a further year beyond then.
