HC Deb 13 March 2001 vol 364 cc508-9W
Mr. Frank Cook

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what representations he has received concerning anti-handling devices on anti-vehicle mines; and if he will make a statement. [152601]

Mr. Spellar

We have received a copy of the Landmine Action report, "Alternative anti-personnel mines—The next generations". As far as we can establish we have received no other representations in the past year. Anti-tank mines in service with the UK armed forces are fully compliant with our obligations under international law, including the Ottawa Convention.
