HC Deb 23 October 2000 vol 355 c71W
Mr. Brady

To ask the Prime Minister if he tabled proposals at the G8 summit in Japan for concerted action to be taken to encourage the Zimbabwe Government to desist from its programme of illegal seizures of white-owned farms. [133851]

The Prime Minister

No proposals specific to Zimbabwe were tabled at the G8 Summit. However, we have been in regular contact with members of the international community who share our concerns about the illegal occupation of farms in Zimbabwe. We have repeatedly urged the Government of Zimbabwe to take action to end the occupations and to restore the rule of law.
