Western Sahara

Volume 448: debated on Monday 3 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent assessment she has made of human rights in Western Sahara. (80261)

My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary has made no recent assessment of the human rights situation in Western Sahara.

I visited Morocco on 6-7 June and raised the issue of Western Sahara. That included human rights. I have urged Morocco to respect human rights in the Territory, for instance in my speech at Chatham House on 22 June.
