HL Deb 13 May 1986 vol 474 c1130WA
Baroness Lane-Fox

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they decided to renew their commitment to the Sinai Multinational Force and Observers, when that commitment expired on 20th April.

Baroness Young

The Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) have been informed by means of an exchange of notes, which will be published in due course in the Treaty Series, that the United Kingdom's participation in the MFO will be continued for an additional period of one year beginning on 21st April 1986. Our participation will continue for a further period of one year thereafter unless HMG decides to inform the MFO at least 90 days prior to the expiry of the initial one-year term of the United Kingdom's intention to terminate its participation.
