asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether through the Commonwealth, EU or the United Nations, they will work towards the establishment of a fair electoral register and other necessary reforms well in advance of the 1997 Presidential election in the Cameroon Republic.[10th July]

The Minister of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Baroness Chalker of Wallasey)

We are ready to work with our Commonwealth, EU and UN partners to assist the Cameroonians in making appropriate arrangements for both the legislative and presidential elections in 1997. Our offer to train election observers has already been accepted.
