asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether it is with their approval that the United States Commander of the coalition forces in the Gulf is making statements about future arrangements for ensuring "peace and security" in the Middle East in advance of international agreement.

The Earl of Caithness:

The US Government have made it clear that General Schwarzkopf's remarks were made on a personal basis.
