HC Deb 08 February 2001 vol 362 c626W
Mr. Beggs

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has made to the Swedish Government to ensure that IRA fund-raising activities do not take place in Sweden through IRA-linked business operations; and if he will make a statement. [149118]

Mr. Vaz

The Government are aware of recent Swedish newspaper allegations concerning IRA fund-raising in Sweden, but has no evidence to support them. Any allegations of fund-raising for the purposes of terrorism are examined carefully, and if necessary the UK authorities take action in co-operation with their counterparts in other countries.
