HC Deb 09 January 2001 vol 360 cc507-8W
Mr. Alexander

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list those countries which his Department believes sponsor terrorism. [143641]

Mr. Battle

The Government condemn state sponsorship of terrorism and monitor closely any evidence of such activities. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office makes the responsible Governments aware of our concerns.

It is not, however, HM Government's practice formally to designate particular countries as state sponsors of terrorism.
