Brown: "Mister Speaker, I'm thinking of all the issues that he wishes me to talk about in relation to the Western Sahara [noise, laughter?]. The one thing that I have been worried about is the growth of ethnic violence in these areas; the one thing that we've been trying to do is to increase, indeed, double the aid in these areas; and the one thing that we have been worried about ...that we have been worried about is the growth of terrorist groups in these areas and that's why we are taking the action that is necessary to dissuade terrorism and take the action that is necessary. I've had numerous conversations with leaders in these areas - if he wishes [interruption] if he wishes to direct [noise] me to a specific point, I will take it up"
