Mercenaries

Mr. Llwyd : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many British citizens are currently known to be actively involved in foreign conflicts as mercenaries ; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Douglas Hogg : There are no figures available for the numbers of British citizens involved in foreign conflicts as mercenaries. The Government have no control over private citizens going overseas. The recruitment of mercenaries in this country is in some cases unlawful. If any evidence came to light that British citizens recruited as mercenaries were engaged in illegal activities, that evidence would be referred to the relevant authorities.

British Workers Abroad

Mr. Llwyd : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many United Kingdom citizens under the age of 25 years are currently known to be working abroad in part-time jobs ; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd : The Government do not maintain records of British nationals under the age of 25 who are in part-time employment abroad.

Violent Crime

Mr. Llwyd : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many United Kingdom citizens were victims of violent crime while being abroad in 1993 ; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd : In 1993 there were 194 cases of violent crime abroad against British nationals notified to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The crimes included homicide, rape, assault and kidnap.

Oeno (Rats)

Mr. Dalyell : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what proposals he has received from Dr. M. de L. Brooke of the department of zoology at Cambridge university for the removal of rats from Oeno in the Pitcairn Islands group ; and what action he is taking.

Mr. Goodlad : Dr. Brooke wrote to me on 17 June with a proposal for the eradication of rats from Oeno island, at an estimated cost of £47,500. We will consider this proposal carefully in the context of the management plan we are drawing up for the neighbouring island of Henderson, and plan to discuss it further with Dr. Brooke.

Mrs. Rekhmat Bibi

Mr. Madden : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will arrange for the application by Mrs. Rekhmat Bibi--ref. V94/01052--to the British high commission in Islamabad to visit the United Kingdom to be urgently reconsidered on the basis of correspondence from Bradford law centre forwarded to him by the hon. Member for Bradford, West.


Column 138

Mr. Lennox-Boyd : The documents referred to have not yet been received in my office. I have however asked the entry clearance officer at the high commission in Islamabad to let me have a report. I shall arrange for the hon. Member to receive a substantive reply from the migration and visa correspondence unit of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as soon as possible.

Test Ban Treaty

Mr. Hutton : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment he has made of the draft comprehensive test ban treaty tabled by the Australian Government in Geneva on 31 March.

Mr. Heathcoat-Amory : On 31 March, the Australian Government put forward a resource paper, in the form of a draft comprehensive test ban treaty, to aid the work of the nuclear test ban ad hoc committee. This resource paper contains interesting and useful ideas.

Mr. Hutton : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is his assessment of the likely duration of negotiations for a comprehensive test ban treaty after the first two sessions of talks at the conference on disarmament ; and if he will make a statement on the issues remaining to be resolved.

Mr. Heathcoat-Amory : There has been good progress in the second session of the comprehensive test ban treaty negotiations. We hope that similar progress can be made during the final 1994 session of the conference on disarmament from 25 July to 7 September. It is difficult, however, to assess how much longer the negotiating process is likely to take. The CTB delegations will agree to the treaty as a whole, rather than in sections. Major issues on which negotiations are likely to focus include verification, the organisation, duration, scope, and entry into force.

Mr. Hutton : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on progress being made towards a comprehensive test ban treaty at the conference on disarmament in Geneva.

Mr. Heathcoat-Amory : There has been good progress in the second session of the comprehensive test ban treaty negotiations. Delegations have shown a strong commitment to moving forward towards agreement on an effective, verifiable CTB. The United Kingdom team has been fully involved in the debate, and has made valuable contributions to the work completed during this session. In particular, the contribution by the United Kingdom friend of the chair in the verification working group has been warmly welcomed.

Mr. Hutton : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment Her Majesty's Government have made of progress towards preparing a draft comprehensive test ban treaty by the two working groups of the conference on disarmament's ad hoc committee on a nuclear test ban.

Mr. Heathcoat-Amory : The two working groups have made excellent progress. The working group on verification has conducted intensive discussions on the various monitoring techniques which might be deployed in an international verification system. The working group on legal and institutional issues has completed the first or


Column 139

second readings of all main draft articles. Both working groups have produced compilations of draft treaty text to be used as the basis of negotiations in the next session.

Mr. Hutton : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether the chair of the ad hoc committee on a nuclear test ban treaty at the conference on disarmament in Geneva had not presented an official draft treaty before the end of the second session ; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Heathcoat-Amory : The chairman of the ad hoc group on a nuclear test ban has decided that the composite texts produced by the two working groups--on verification and on legal and institutional issues--should be put forward for the next session as the basis for negotiations. We welcome Ambassador Marin-Bosch's pragmatic attitude in promoting the committee's efforts to develop these composite texts into a rolling text.

Iran

Mr. Corbett : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what response was given to an Iranian Government representative's complaints about items concerning the Mashad bombing, broadcast by Spectrum Radio's Persian programme.

Mr. Douglas Hogg : The Iranian authorities have told us that they believe that Spectrum Radio's Persian programme is broadcasting subversive material on behalf of the Iranian opposition group, the Mojahedin-e Khalq-- MKO. They have not complained about any specific broadcast. We have replied that any organisation enjoys freedom of speech in the United Kingdom as long as it acts within the law. Any breach of the terms and conditions of the broadcasting licence would be a matter for the Radio Authority, which is investigating a separate complaint. We do not support the MKO. We condemn the terrorist attack on the Mashad mosque.

Cyprus

Mr. O'Hara : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether it is Her Majesty's Government's policy that the Cyprus problem must be resolved before the admission of Cyprus to full membership of the European Community.

Mr. Heathcoat-Amory : It would be difficult for Cyprus to accede if the four freedoms--free movement of people, goods, services and capital-- were not in force throughout the island, but the Council has confirmed that Cyprus is eligible for European Union membership and the next phase of enlargement will involve Cyprus. The Council will review the situation in January 1995.

Hong Kong

Mr. Bermingham : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the election of Mr. John Swaine as President of the Hong Kong Legislative Council on 19 February 1993.

Mr. Goodlad [holding answer 1 July 1994] : Mr. John Swaine was elected unopposed as President of the Hong Kong Legislative Council on 19 February 1993. Although Mr. Swaine's election took place before all the residual


Column 140

formalities relating to the Hong Kong Letters Patent 1992 and the Hong Kong Additional Instructions 1992 had been completed, we know of no act performed by Mr. Swaine which was invalid as a result of this error.

Mr. Bermingham : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the errors in the procedural steps in respect of local laws enacted in Hong Kong in 1992 and 1993 including the two budgets ; and if he will introduce legislation to rectify those errors.

Mr. Goodlad [holding answer 1 July 1994] : The Hong Kong Letters Patent 1992 and the Hong Kong Additional Instructions 1992 were published in the Hong Kong Gazette before residual formalities relating to them were completed. This should have no effect on the validity of anything done in Hong Kong before or after the formalities had been completed, but we are considering whether any further action is necessary to remove doubt in this matter.

Mr. Bermingham : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what date Her Majesty sealed the amendments to the Hong Kong Additional Instructions 1992 and the Hong Kong Letters Patent 1992 ; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Goodlad [holding answer 1 July 1994] : The Hong Kong Letters Patent 1992 were sealed on 15 April 1993 and the Hong Kong Additional Instructions 1992 were signed by Her Majesty on 24 March 1993.

Mr. Bermingham : To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what were the reasons for the legal formalities not being completed prior to the enactment of the Hong Kong Letters Patent 1992 and the Hong Kong Additional Instruction 1992.

Mr. Goodlad [holding answer 1 July 1994] : As a result of a clerical error, the Hong Kong Letters Patent 1992 and the Hong Kong Additional Instructions 1992 were gazetted and brought into force in Hong Kong before the residual formalities had been completed.

AGRICULTURE, FISHERIES AND FOOD

Animal Welfare

Mr. Morley : To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many prosecutions for cruelty to livestock were brough in each year since 1985 ; and how many, in each year, were brought by (a) the Government and (b) the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Mr. Soames : The number of prosecutions for cruelty to livestock in England and Wales taken by my Department and the Welsh Office between 1985 and 1993 under the Protection of Animals Acts 1911 to 1988 and the Agriculture (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1968 are as follows :

1991   |0            

1992   |6            

1993   |2            

Prosecutions may also be taken by other parties such as local authorities and the RSPCA. Comprehensive figures on the numbers of such prosecutions are not available.

Arable Area Payments

Dr. Strang : To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many farmers in England received arable area payments greater than (a) £100,000, (b) £250,000, (c) £500,000 and (d) £1,000, 000 in the last year for which the information is available.

Mrs. Gillian Shephard : Under the integrated administration and control system, applicants must make a single application covering all the land which they farm and some applications cover a number of holdings which are farmed quite separately on a day-to-day basis. The information given below relates to IACS applications, rather than to individual farmers.

Mr. Jack : The following surveys of views, opinions and attitudes of staff have been carried out within the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, and its agencies during the last two years. Summaries of findings made available to staff will be placed in the Library.

Central Veterinary Laboratories--Repertory Grid Survey (assessment of the views of staff on management styles), summer 1993

Intervention Board--Staff Attitude Survey, November 1992 Central Science Laboratories--Survey of the Quality of Administrative Services, summer 1992

A summary is being produced for staff, which will be placed in the Library when ready.

Common Agricultural Policy

Mr. Tipping : To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, pursuant to her answer of 24 June, Official Report, column 391, when she expects the 1992 CAP reform agreement to be fully implemented ; what benefit of that reform deal has been experienced by consumers in food prices to date ; what estimates she has of the costs of the CAP to the consumer in (i) 1992 and (ii) 1993 ; what foodstuffs she expects will cost consumers less ; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Jack [holding answer 4 July 1994] : The 1992 CAP reforms will be fully implemented by the end of the 1995-96 marketing years for those commodities affected. The reforms will result in particular in a reduction in the support prices for cereals and beef of around 35 per cent. and 15 per cent. respectively. Overall, the effect of CAP reform will be to reduce support prices by an amount equivalent to 2 per cent. of retail food prices, the effect being spread over a number of years. However, movements in retail food prices are influenced by a wide range of factors and it is not possible to isolate the impact of any single factor over a particular period. Estimates of the total cost of the CAP to consumers are not possible without making speculative assumptions about current levels of world prices and the changes in these prices if present policies were abandoned.

SCOTLAND

Nursery Schools

Mr. Gallie : To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland which rating authorities in Scotland use their discretionary powers to reduce rates leviable on private sector nursery schools.

Mr. Stewart : Details of the policies of individual rating authorities with regard to their granting of discretionary rating relief are not held centrally. However, if a private sector nursery school has charitable status it will be eligible for mandatory rates relief of 80 per cent. in accordance with section 4 of the Local Government (Financial Provisions Etc.) (Scotland) Act 1962, as amended.

Council Tax

Mr. Tyler : To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list, by council tax collection authority area, the number of outstanding banding appeal cases and the proportion they represent of all liable properties in that area, as at 1 April.

Mr. Stewart : The table provides the available information, which relates to all classes of proposal to change the valuation list made to assessors and subsequent appeals.

Sir Hector Monro : I refer the hon. Member to my second reply to him of 15 June 1994, Official Report, column 469.

Public Bodies

Mr. Kilfoyle : To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) if he will list the advisory non-departmental public bodies sponsored by his Department which have a statutory basis ;

The next edition of "Public Bodies", with updated information, will be published in December. Other information on the advisory non- departmental public bodies sponsored by my Department is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

Enterprise Allowance Scheme

Mr. McLeish : To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the take-up of the enterprise allowance scheme in Fife over the last three years ; and what was (a) the number and (b) the total value of awards made in each six-month period.

Mr. Stewart [holding answer 27 June 1994] : Questions relating to the take-up of the enterprise allowance scheme in Fife are a matter for Scottish Enterprise. I have asked the chairman to write to the hon. Member.

Seabird Monitoring Programme

Mr. Menzies Campbell : To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what support will be provided to the long-term seabird monitoring programme on the Isle of May.

Sir Hector Monro [holding answer 4 July 1994] : The Institute for Terrestrial Ecology will carry out seabird monitoring on the Isle of May this year on behalf of the Joint Nature Conservation Committee. The value of the contract is £9,300. In addition, Scottish Natural Heritage, which owns and manages the island as a national nature reserve, carries out its own monitoring work on the island and has commissioned further monitoring projects to the value of £7,500. Decisions on monitoring projects in future years are matters for Scottish Natural Heritage and the JNCC.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton [holding answer 1 July 1994] : Central Scotland police, Grampian, Northern constabulary and Tayside police have not incurred any expense in policing fox hunts since 1990. Details relating to costs incurred by Fife constabulary and Strathclyde police are not readily available. The estimated costs for policing this activity by Dumfries and Galloway constabulary and Lothian and Borders police are as follows :

Scottish Homes

Mr. McMaster : To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish a table showing the identifiable (a) capital and (b) revenue or current expenditure by Scottish Homes by regional council electoral division, or on any other geographical basis on which the data are collated or accounted, in each year since 1990 ; how much in both expenditure categories is (i) legally committed and


Column 146

(ii) planned for 1994-95 and 1995-96 ; what is the pro rata expenditure in each category for each regional council electoral division, expressed as a percentage of the total capital and revenue budgets measured against their respective populations ; if he will rank the regional council electoral divisions in descending order by level of expenditure in both categories ; and if he will make a statement.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton : Scottish Homes does not hold records by regional council electoral division. The information which is readily available is shown in the table and groups district council areas together according to Scottish Homes administrative districts. The figures show capital expenditure on development funding ; revenue grants amount to only £6.5 million across Scotland in 1994-95. The programme for 1995-96 will not be decided until after my right hon. Friend announces his expenditure plans later this year.
