§ Mr. Madden
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many British helicopter gunships have been deployed to protect United Kingdom forces escorting those supplying humanitarian relief, by road or air, in Bosnia; and how many British fighter aircraft have been deployed to Bosnia to monitor air exclusion zones and other duties.
§ Mr. Archie Hamilton
No helicopter gunships or fighter aircraft have been deployed to Bosnia in support of the United Kingdom contingent or any other element of the UN protection force. The United Kingdom is taking part in surveillance and monitoring activity by the NATO airborne early warning force which is supporting the naval monitoring operation in the Adriatic and is monitoring compliance with Security Council resolution 781.
