HL Deb 25 June 1998 vol 591 c41WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they and the Governments of France, Germany, Italy and other countries which have taken part in peacekeeping operations approved by the United Nations are considering taking the Government of the United States to court over the monies due to them from the unpaid United States dues to the United Nations. [HL2191]

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean

No. However, we have made it clear to the US Administration on several occasions that we expect the US to pay its UN arrears and future contributions promptly, in full and without conditions. The EU Troika, led by the UK as Presidency, reiterated this to the US Administration on 9 June.
