Lord Alton commented:

“I have chaired the All-Party Group on North Korea for 10 years. Earlier this year, the United Nations Commission of Inquiry, chaired by Mr Justice Kirby, said of North Korea: ‘The gravity, scale and nature of these violations reveal a State that does not have any parallel in the contemporary world’.” 

“If that is so, why have we done nothing so far to ensure that the findings in that commission of inquiry report have been laid before the Security Council?”
