HL Deb 03 April 1996 vol 571 cc40-1WA
Lord Lester of Herne Hill

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What are their plans to publicise and disseminate the observations made by the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on the United Kingdom's Thirteenth Periodic Report to that committee.

Baroness Blatch

The Concluding Observations of the Committee on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, following the United Kingdom's oral examination on its Thirteenth Periodic Report, will be placed in the Library. The corrected summary records of the hearing will also be placed there once they have been issued by the committee. Both documents are published by the United Nations, and copies may be obtained from that source. Copies are also available form the Home Office on request and the Non Governmental Organisations which, to our knowledge, submitted evidence to the committee will be informed of these arrangements.
