HL Deb 07 December 1994 vol 559 c84WA
Lord Judd

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What action they have taken to support the proposal by the Secretary-General of the United Nations on 21 November last that "a United Nations peacekeeping operation, set up in accordance with normal procedures, to establish security progressively in the camps, area by area, over a period of time" should be urgently mobilised to deal with the deteriorating security situation in the refugee camps in Zaire.

Baroness Chalker of Wallasey

The President of the United Nations Security Council issued a statement on 30 November in response to the Secretary-General's report on the situation in the refugee camps in Zaire and the proposals put forward in that report. We fully support that statement, copies of which have been placed in the Libraries of the House.
