§ Mrs. Spelman
To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what assessment she has made of the sanctions against terrorists in Angola since the publication of the third report of the Monitoring Mechanism on Sanctions against UNITA. 
§ Clare Short
We welcome the Monitoring Mechanism's latest report in October. The report is currently under discussion by the Security Council and we look forward to a timely follow-up.
The Government fully support the sanctions imposed by UNCSRs 864, 1127, and 1173 as a means of bringing UNITA to the negotiating table. We are currently investigating two UK companies named in the latest report and hope to report back to the Sanctions Committee shortly.
