Lord Lester of Herne Hill

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will support the creation of a permanent international criminal tribunal to try serious violations of international humanitarian law.

We fully support the establishment of an international criminal court to try war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity. We will take an active part in the negotiations on a statute for the court.
