§ Mr. Chris Davies
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will take steps to assist the combatant parties in Sudan to reach a negotiated settlement which provides for self-determination for the southern population; what measures he has taken to date to assist the peace process; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Hanley
We have fully supported the peace initiative of the intergovernmental authority for development. The declaration of principles produced under that initiative included the right of self-determination for southern Sudan. In our frequent contacts with the parties, we continue to urge a negotiated end to the war.
