§ The Earl of Kimberley
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will oppose the candidature of Ethiopia for a seat on the UN Security Council, and whether they will support the candidature of Somalia.
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Armed Forces (Lord Trefgarne)
Elections to the United Nations Security Council are by secret ballot in the General Assembly. It is our policy not to reveal how we vote in such elections.
