§ Mr. Hain
The European Secretary General/High Representative, Mr. Javier Solana, appealed to EU Foreign Ministers at the beginning of February for more police officers for UNIP. This followed a request from the UN for additional police deployments, to which we have responded by doubling our contribution to the UN international police force in Kosovo.
§ Mr. Maude
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (1) what representations have been made to him by the head of UNMIK, about the numbers of international police officers in Kosovo; 501W
(2) what representations he has received from the UN Secretary-General about the numbers of international police officers in Kosovo. 
§ Mr. Hain
The UK, along with its Quint, EU and G8 partners, is in regular contact with Secretary-General Annan and his Special Representative for Kosovo, Bernard Kouchner, about all aspects of the international effort in Kosovo, including the need for more police officers. The UN Secretariat has made two requests for police officers, both of which the UK has been able to respond to positively, bringing the total number of UK police officers pledged to UNIP to 120.
