HC Deb 12 February 1997 vol 290 c234W
36. Mr. Spring

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on relations between the United Kingdom and Korea. [13989]

Mr. Hanley

We have an important political and economic partnership with the Republic of Korea. They work closely with us on the UN Security Council. We have recently welcomed them as a new member of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, and we are delighted that the UK has attracted over 50 per cent. of Korean investment in Europe.
