HC Deb 23 January 1987 vol 108 c778W
Mr. Terlezki

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will seek to secure the publication of the report by the International Human Rights Committee about human rights in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Renton

The second periodic report submitted by the Soviet Union to the Human Rights Committee was published by the United Nations as UN document CC PR/C/8/ADD3. This report was discussed by the Human Rights Committee during its 23rd session in October 1984 and a summary of these discussions is contained in the committee's report to the 40th session of the United Nations General Assembly, published on 19 September 1985 as UN document A/40/40.
