§ Lord Kennet
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether the UN Compensation Commission and Fund, established under UN Security Council Resolution 687 and 692, should now be expanded to cover claims for compensation for direct loss, damage or injury resulting from Israel's invasion and occupation of south Lebanon.
§ Baroness Chalker of Wallasey
The UN Compensation Fund and Commission was set up specifically to cover claims for compensation resulting from Iraq's invasion and occupation of Kuwait. Its terms of reference as set out in Security Council Resolution 687 and 692, mean that it cannot be expanded.
