Baroness Massey of Darwen

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What arrangements are being made to publicise the United Kingdom's policies on international humanitarian law, with particular reference to the International Criminal Court. [HL 1155]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Baroness Amos)

On 4 October the Foreign and Commonwealth Office issued a publication entitledUnited Kingdom and International Humanitarian Law, whose appearance was timed to coincide with United Kingdom ratification of the Rome Statute establishing the International Criminal Court. The publication, which has been placed in the Libraries of both Houses, describes the United Kingdom's policy regarding the International Criminal Court itself, in addition to a number of other important areas of international humanitarian law.
