§ Mr. Alan Simpson
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what plans he has to discuss the issue of unexploded bombs in Laos with(a) the Laotian Government, (b) the American Government, (c) the UN and (d) other relief agencies. 
§ Mr. Fatchett
We are in touch regularly with the United Nations, who co-ordinate international assistance towards unexploded ordinance projects with the Lao Government. We have contributed more than £600,000 through various relief agencies in the last two years. There are no immediate plans for direct discussions with the Lao or United States Governments.
