HC Deb 08 July 1993 vol 228 c280W
Mr. Marlow

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what consideration he has given to a system of dual contract for personnel in Her Majesty's services to enable volunteers to make a standing commitment to international peacemaking operations; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hanley

We do not believe that a system of dual contract as described would improve the United Kingdom's ability to provide armed forces for international peacekeeping operations.
