HL Deb 17 June 1999 vol 602 cc47-8WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they agree with the estimate of the total cost of the damage to Yugoslavia from the bombing, published in the Independent on 17 May, of 200 billion dollars. [HL2812]

Lord Gilbert

It is impossible to make any reliable estimate of the cost of the damage to Yugoslavia as a result of the NATO bombing campaign. I cannot, therefore, comment on the figure of £125 billion published in theIndependent of 17 May.
