HC Deb 26 October 1972 vol 843 cc419-20W
Mr. Rost

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations have been made by Her Majesty's Government to the Government of Peru to ensure that British interests in Peruvian Corporation are protected; and what replies have been received.

Mr. Kershaw

Her Majesty's Ministers have made it clear to the Peruvian Government that they are concerned about that Government's treatment of the Peruvian Corporation Limited, and that they expect the Government to settle its differences with the company in a way which will be fair to the British interests involved. Her Majesty's Government are keeping in touch with the Peruvian Government and the Company.
