§ The Earl of Sandwich
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Which European Union member states have indicated their willingness to impose economic or financial sanctions on the Burmese Government. [HL1522]
§ Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean
There is no EU consensus to impose economic or financial sanctions on Burma. It would not be consistent with the confidential nature of EU discussions to name member states. The Government have, however, been able to adopt some trade measures short of sanctions in addition to existing EU measures against Burma. We shall continue to urge EU partners to adopt similar measures.
