§ Mr. Dalyell
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment he has made of current persecution of Iraqis by the Government of Saddam Hussein.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
We continue to monitor the situation in Iraq closely and receive information from a number of sources. We have made clear to the Iraqis that we would take the severest view of any evidence of persecution, which would contravene the terms of Security Council resolution 688.
