Volume 712: debated on Monday 6 July 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether British naval vessels have been given authority to compel North Korean ships to dock at foreign ports in support of paragraph 13 of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1874. [HL4613]

United Nations Security Council Resolution 1874 does not provide the UK with legal authority to compel North Korean ships to dock at foreign ports.

Consequently, Royal Naval ships have not been directed to do so.
