HC Deb 25 January 1990 vol 165 c801W
Mr. Tony Lloyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the position of Her Majesty's Government at the forthcoming United Nations Human Rights Commission on the question of East Timor and abuse of human rights.

Mr. Sainsbury

East Timor is not, at present, on the agenda for the forthcoming UNCHR session. We support the role of the UN Secretary-General in encouraging a bilateral settlement between Indonesia and Portugal which fully takes into account the interests of the people of East Timor. We should also examine carefully any report of human rights abuses.

Forward to
