My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary's statement to the House yesterday made our position clear. Zimbabwe's people want the agreement signed on paper to work in practice. A Cabinet needs to be appointed without further delay to reform Zimbabwe's economic management and the behaviour of its security forces. The UK continues to provide humanitarian relief to the Zimbabwean people and we remain ready to support recovery when a new government shows commitment to reform.
