HC Deb 18 May 1998 vol 312 cc252-3W
25. Mr. Clifton-Brown

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on his strategy for military deployment in the middle east to ensure compliance with United Nations resolutions relating to Iraq. [41321]

Mr. George Robertson

UK forces remain deployed in the Gulf to help ensure that Saddam Hussein complies with all relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions. We would wish to see a pattern of Iraqi compliance with relevant UNSCRs over a period of time before considering whether to change our military capability in the region.
