To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what (a) discussions have taken place with Interpol and (b) representations he has received concerning an award by Interpol to the Commissioner of Police for Zimbabwe; and if he will make a statement. [114989]

[holding answer 22 May 2003]: No representations have been received and no discussions have taken place. The Political and Security Committee of the EU met on 16 May 2003 where it was agreed that the EU Presidency would write on behalf of the council to the Secretary General of Interpol setting out the EU concerns and asking them to consider the moral and political implications of this appointment. The UK fully supports this move.
