To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what effect the imposition of the no-fly zone over Bosnia-Herzegovina will have on the safety and ability of British Forces serving with the United Nations in Bosnia-Herzegovina to carry out the role currently assigned to them.

We regard the safety of our forces serving in Bosnia as a paramount consideration. All necessary steps will be taken to reduce to the minimum the risks which those forces face. Any change in that risk that could result from the imposition of the no-fly zone or could come from any other source is being taken into account in our planning.
