HC Deb 02 May 2001 vol 367 c688W
Mr. Dalyell

To ask the Prime Minister if he will discuss with President Bush the consequences of sanctions against(a) Libya and (b) Iraq on the availability of oil supplies to the West. [159171]

The Prime Minister

UN sanctions against Libya have been suspended since April 1999. Therefore, they have no impact on the availability of oil supplies from Libya to the West.

Following the adoption of UN Security Council resolution 1284 (1999), Iraq is permitted to export unlimited amounts of oil under the UN oil-for-food programme.
