HC Deb 05 March 1998 vol 307 c711W
Sir John Stanley

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if Her Majesty's Government will be supporting at the forthcoming session of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights a resolution identical or similar to that introduced by Denmark at the 53rd Session in Geneva headed, "Situation of Human Rights in China"; and if he will make a statement. [32075]

Mr. Fatchett

European Union Foreign Ministers decided on 23 February that neither the Presidency nor Member States should table or co-sponsor a draft resolution on China at this year's Commission on Human Rights. We support that decision and will continue to pursue our human rights concerns through dialogue and co-operation.
