Business of the House (24 Feb 1994)

Paul Kenney (10 Dec 1993)

Mr Greville Janner: I thank the Minister for what he has said and for giving way. Is it not a matter of grave concern that now that so much time has passed, no one will ever know what has happened, because the evidence will have become stale?

Paul Kenney (10 Dec 1993)

Mr Greville Janner: I understand it, but I shall seek the best way to get round it as I do not regard a friendly nation as one that says that it cannot identify a body when identity has already been established in the morgue, and when it does not inform the parents of the death.

Paul Kenney (10 Dec 1993)

Mr Greville Janner: I thank the hon. Gentleman, it does speak for itself. If the authorities are not ashamed of themselves, they should be.

My job is to look after people like them and at least I could share their frustration. I immediately...

Kashmir (Human Rights) (9 Dec 1993)
