HC Deb 27 November 1995 vol 267 c427W
Mr. Tony Lloyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what steps he has taken, and on what dates, to freeze the personal accounts or assets of members of regimes with whom the United Kingdom is in dispute as part of a national or international sanctions policy. [2565]

Sir Nicholas Bonsor

[holding answer 27 November 1995]: The United Kingdom has no unilateral sanctions in place against the assets or personal accounts of foreign regimes. However, we do implement the mandatory financial sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council. Such financial sanctions are in place against Iraq, in UNSCR 661—adopted on 6 August 1990—and Libya, in UNSCR 863—adopted on 11 November 1993.
