Raoul Wallenberg

Volume 479: debated on Thursday 17 July 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (1) what recent reports he has received on the case of Raoul Wallenberg; and if he will make a statement; (217917)

(2) what steps he (a) has taken and (b) plans to take at the United Nations on the case of Raoul Wallenberg; and if he will make a statement;

(3) what assistance his Department has (a) offered and (b) plans to offer to the Swedish Bilateral Commission on the disappearance of Raoul Wallenberg; and if he will make a statement.

The Government have not received any recent reports on the case of the Swedish citizen Mr. Raoul Wallenberg.

The Government have no plans to raise the case of Mr. Raoul Wallenberg at the UN.

Records that might show whether the Swedish Bilateral Commission sought any assistance from the UK, or whether the Foreign and Commonwealth Office might have information of use to the Commission, are not held centrally. To provide this information would incur a disproportionate cost.
