§ Lord Kennet
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What response they receive from the United States when they urge the United States to pay their arrears and future contributions to the United Nations promptly and in full. [HL2956]
§ Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean
We raise this question regularly with the US. The Administration, while assuring us that it wishes to solve the problem, points to political difficulties in the Congress. Many members of Congress blame the blockage on the Administration's unwillingness to accept the language on family planning in the relevant legislation.
