Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will now support the European Union proposal to nominate 1997 as an anti-racist year; and if he will make a statement. [38224]

We support the draft resolution designating 1997 as the European Year against Racism. We expect the resolution to be adopted by the Council in the near future.
