§ Lord Lester of Herne Hill
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Further to the Answer given by Baroness Chalker of Wallasey on 12th June 1996 (WA 168), whether they will now support the imposition of international 87WA economic sanctions against the military regime in Burma for gross violations of human rights and democratic freedoms, analogous to the international economic sanctions successfully imposed against apartheid in South Africa.
§ Baroness Chalker of Wallasey
We have no plans to support the imposition of international economic sanctions against Burma.
