HC Deb 06 December 1993 vol 234 c40W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action Her Majesty's Government will take on the eviction by the Turkish security forces of the villagers of Hassana in south-eastern Turkey; and if he will take steps to encourage the Turkish authorities to ensure that the villagers have sufficient food, clothing, warmth and shelter.

Mr. Heathcoat-Amory

We have made clear to the Turkish Government our concern about the conflict in south-east Turkey, and will continue to do so. It is appalling that innocent civilians should be caught up in the violence, and vital that human rights should be properly respected.
