HC Deb 03 June 1985 vol 80 c21W
Mr. Corbyn

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce measures to prevent the recruiting of mercenaries in Britain to fight against the Government of Nicaragua.

Mr. Mellor

We have no present plans for legislation relating to mercenaries. The United Kingdom is playing a full pan in the United Nations ad hoc committee on the drafting of an international convention against the recruitment, use, financing and training of mercenaries.
