§ Mr. Wilshire
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the renewed fighting in Angola and on the steps he is able to take to help the international community to arrange a ceasefire.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
We deplore the renewal of violence in Angola and fully support the efforts of the United Nations special representative there to consolidate the ceasefire arranged by the United Nations Secretary-General on the night of 1 November. We continue to work actively to this end in the United Nations and with EC partners and, in Angola, through our ambassador in Luanda.
