asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he made to the Lebanese or Syrian Governments about the recent massacres of Palestinian Arabs by Shi'ite Lebanese Arabs in the housing estates in the suburb of Beirut knows as Sabra and Chatilla; and whether the United Kingdom Ambassador at the United Nations asked for a meeting of the Security Council regarding these inter-communal Arab massacres.
I refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Isle of Wight (Mr. Ross) on 20 June at column 202.
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the policy of Her Majesty's Government towards the withdrawal of Israeli defence forces from Lebanon; and what communication Her Majesty's Government have had with the Government of Israel on this matter.
We condemned the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982, and welcomed the Israeli Government's decision to end their occupation. We have made it clear to the Israeli Government that we look for the early and complete withdrawal of all Israeli forces from Lebanese territory.
