HC Deb 04 May 1982 vol 23 c18
Q3. Mr. Brinton

asked the Prime Minister if she will list her official engagements for Tuesday 4 May.

The Prime Minister

I refer my hon. Friend to the reply that I gave some moments ago.

Mr. Brinton

Is my right hon. Friend aware that she still has massive support for her Government's policies on the Falkland Islands? Is she also aware that there are two former colonies in the world today with populations of fewer than 8,000 and about 20 countries which have; less land area than the Falkland Islands? Will she ensure; that Britain does not deviate from its determination to demonstrate that armed, unprovoked aggression must never pay?

The Prime Minister

I believe that what my hon. Friend says about there being small countries in the Commonwealth and countries with smaller areas than the Falkland Islands is correct. I entirely agree that unless Britain manages to stop and undo the Argentine aggression, many other small countries and territories will go in fear that they may suffer the same fate.
