Hon. Paul Martin (Secretary of State for External Affairs):

Mr. Speaker, I did not say that Australia was sending troops. I said that Australia had agreed to supply a police group numbering about 28. I said that New Zealand was sending a police group of about the same number, and that Denmark had agreed to send a contingent. The total number now in the United Nations peace keeping force is 6,369, and the present force level of the United Kingdom is 2,719. There are 6,341 United Nations troops now in the United Nations peace keeping force.
