To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what operational resources the United Nations has put in place to ensure that the Zairean military authorities comply with international standards including the international conventions on protection of the rights of refugees in relation to the army of Zaire policing camps for displaced Rwandese; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Baldry

The UNHCR agreement with Zaire provides for a 50-man international "camp security liaison group" to organise material support, monitor the operation and liaise with the Zaire authorities.
