HC Deb 16 May 1990 vol 172 c409W
Sir David Steel

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what support Her Majesty's Government are giving to the Secretary-General of the United Nations following his recent visit to Morocco and Algeria in making progress towards holding the referendum in the western Sahara.

Mr. Waldegrave

We have consistently supported the United Nations Secretary-General in his efforts to find a solution to the dispute over the western Sahara. We have also joined our Community partners in welcoming the acceptance by both parties of the United Nations Secretary-General's referendum proposals.
