HC Deb 12 November 1987 vol 122 c243W
Mr. Leadbitter

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make it his policy not to sanction further European Economic Community contacts with President Assad's regime in Syria so long as human rights abuses, as high-lighted by the recent Amnesty International report, persist.

Mr. Mellor

We are studying the Amnesty International report carefully and drawing the attention of our partners in the Twelve to the very serious allegations in it.
