HL Deb 16 December 1999 vol 608 c48WA
Lord Judd

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What action they are taking bilaterally and multilaterally towards ensuring that the human rights operation in Angola is fully resourced and funded. [HL226]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Baroness Scotland of Asthal)

UN human rights work in Angola is indispensable to securing a lasting peace in that country. We voted in favour of UNSC Resolution 1268 establishing the United Nations office in Angola (UNOA). We strongly support the inclusion of human rights elements within that office. We will be providing funds for the common costs of UNOA in accordance with established UN scales of assessment.
