HC Deb 08 April 1968 vol 762 cc173-4W
40. Sir T. Beamish

asked the Lord President of the Council if he will facilitate an immediate visit by hon. Members of this House to the Falkland Islands.

Mr. Peart

I have been asked to reply.

I am sure that the Government and people of the Falkland Islands would welcome a visit by Members of this House at any time; and in March last year two Members went there representing the United Kingdom Branch of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association. I do not think there is any need for a similar visit at this time, but we will gladly bear the hon. and gallant Member's suggestion in mind.
