FOREIGN AND COMMONWEALTH AFFAIRS
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list the business contracted out by his Department to Carabiner since May 1997. 
Since May 1997 the Department has awarded major contracts for the provision of event production services to Carabiner for the following events:
1. The G8 Birmingham Summit from 1517 May 1998.
2. The European Council in Cardiff from 1516 June 1998.
Carabiner were also involved in one event for the Your Britain, Your Europe campaign.
The event production contracts do not include the "contracting out" of services normally performed "in-house" by the FCO.

Balkan War Crimes
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when he expects those indicted for war crimes in the Balkans to be transferred to the Hague Tribunal. 
According to official figures from the Tribunal (ICTY), of those indictees currently in The Hague, 10, including Slobodan Milosevic, have been

arrested and transferred by governments and 15 have surrendered voluntarily. In addition, 18 individuals who were the subject of the NATO Stabilisation Force (SFOR)'s 26 operations to date (14 of which have involved British troops) remain in detention.
Full co-operation with the ICTY is an international obligation. The Prime Minister and the Foreign Secretary raised this issue directly with FRY President Kostunica and Croatian President Mesic during official visits to London in late 2001, and we have also discussed it with the political leaders of Bosnia. We have made it clear that the transfer of all remaining indictees, including Radovan Karadzic, Ratko Mladic and Aute Gotovina must be accelerated in 2002.
