International Criminal Court Bill [H.L.]
Baroness Scotland of Asthal (Parliamentary Under-Secretary, Foreign & Commonwealth Office; Labour)
My Lords, perhaps I may make it plain, if I did not do so earlier, that it is our belief that if a British citizen were to be accused of such an offence, then we in Britain would wish to investigate the matter and we would do so. I am sure that whichever government of whatever complexion in Britain would do the same. The situation which the noble Lord has described should not occur. If it did occur, it would be in our hands.
