Under Article 94 (1) of the United Nations Charter each member State has undertaken to comply with the decision of the International Court of Justice in any case to which it is a party. Moreover, Article 94 (2) provides for recourse to the Security Council if measures are needed to give effect to the Court's judgment. It would therefore seem that no amendment to the Charter, in the sense suggested by the hon. Gentleman, is necessary.
