§ Sir D. Walker-Smith
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has make in respect of the damage to the British Embassy at Tripoli; and whether compensation has been received and an apology recorded.
§ Mr. Joseph Godber
On 19th August formal protests were made to the Libyan Authorities here and in Tripoli. I reinforced these with a personal message to the Libyan Foreign Minister. The Libyan Ambassador expressed his personal regret, but no formal apology or offer of compensation has been received.
