HC Deb 13 February 1990 vol 167 c140W
Mrs. Clwyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether Her Majesty's Government will protest at the participation of a member of the Khmer Rouge as the representative of Cambodia at the world conference on education for all in Thailand on 5 to 9 March; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Sainsbury

The world conference on education for all is being organised and sponsored by four specialised agencies of the United Nations (UNDP, UNESCO, UNICEF and the World Bank). We understand that, as Cambodia's representatives at the UN, the National Government of Cambodia (formerly the Coalition Government of Democratic Kampuchea) will have been invited to attend. This is normal practice for such UN-sponsored conferences.
