HL Deb 04 December 1995 vol 567 cc62-3WA
Lord Avebury

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What additional measures they are taking, following the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Auckland, to persuade the military regime in the Gambia to hand power back to the elected government of Sir Dawda Jawara.

Lord Chesham:

The Gambia should benefit from the Millbrook Programme agreed by Commonwealth Heads of Government, which is intended to advance Commonwealth fundamental political values and to support the practice of Harare principles. We are considering with our Commonwealth partners how to take this forward.
