§ Lord Monson
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will ask the BBC World Service, in its news and current affairs programmes covering Northern Ireland, to refrain from using the phrases "Protestant paramilitaries" and "Protestant terrorists", bearing in mind that care is taken to avoid references to "Catholic paramilitaries" or "Catholic terrorists".
The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of National Heritage (Viscount Astor)
This is a matter for the BBC, taking account of its obligation to treat controversial subjects with due impartiality.
