§ Lord Lester of Herne Hill
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will make generally available to the public the 13th Periodic Report of the United Kingdom to the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination, including the annexes to the report.
§ Baroness Blatch:
We submitted the United Kingdom's 13th Periodic Report under the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination to the United Nations on 21 April 1995 and copies were that day placed in the Library. In accordance with the policy that the report should be freely available outside Parliament for those who wish to receive a copy, we sent copies to those non-governmental organisations with a particular established interest in the report, and we have since supplied copies on request.
