§ Mr. Laurance Reed
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has made to the Eire Government about the protection of British subjects living in the Republic from Irish Republican Army menaces.
§ Mr. Anthony Royle
We have asked the Government of the Republic of Ireland for an immediate investigation into the death of Colonel Walker. The Government of the Republic are, I am sure, as concerned as we are for the safety of British subjects living in the Republic without the need for formal representations arising at this stage.
