[150084]Clare Short: I last met EC Development Commissioner Neilson on 8 February.European Assistance on sexual and reproductive health is governed by the European Community (EC) Council regulation number 1487/97of 22 July 1997 on "aid for population policies and programmes in the developing countries".This regulation denounces any violation of human rights in the form of compulsory abortion, compulsory sterilisation, and otherforms of curbing population growth which are contrary to the principles of free and informed choice agreed at the 1994 InternationalConference on Population and Development (ICPD). The EC submits yearly reports to the European Parliament on the implementation ofthe Regulation.
