§ Mr. Gerrard
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what consideration he has given in recent weeks to declaring Zaire a country in which there has been a fundamental change in circumstances under the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996. 
§ Mr. Kirkhope
My right hon. and learned Friend has no present plans to declare that Zaire has undergone a major upheaval such that we would not seek to return people there for the time being. Most of Zaire is unaffected by the conflict in the east of the country.
