HC Deb 11 May 2001 vol 368 c450W
Ms Oona King

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what measures he will take in response to the UN report on Illegal Exploitation of Natural Resources and Other Forms of Wealth in the Democratic Republic of Congo. [160679]

Mr. Wilson

We have taken careful note of the panel's work so far. We have also supported the extension of the panel's mandate to give it a further opportunity to provide a fully balanced analysis and to include corroborated evidence relating to all parties in the conflict. We now await the panel's final report.
