HC Deb 17 September 2003 vol 410 c788W
Llew Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what studies have been received by the United Nations Security Council Counter Terrorism Committee from(a) academic sources, (b) think-tanks and (c) experts on terrorism; and what the policy is on the availability to the general public of submissions by the United Kingdom to the UNSCCTC. [130359]

Mr. Rammell

We are not aware that any reports from academic sources, think-tanks or experts on terrorism have been formally submitted to the UN's Counter-Terrorism Committee (CTC). However, the CTC has an established body of experts advising it. In the course of their work, the Experts draw on all available sources of information to provide the most up-to-date and effective guidance to the Committee. The CTC makes available to the public all reports from member states by posting them on its official website www.un.org/sc/ctc. This includes the three reports that the United Kingdom has submitted to the CTC to date.
