§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Prime Minister whether he will publish in the Official Report details of his letter to Mr. Hallgrimsson, the Icelandic Prime Minister, dated 28th November 1975 and the reply thereto.
§ The Prime Minister
I do not think any useful purpose would be served by publishing my letter at the present time. Mr. Hallgrimsson's reply is still awaited. I sought to assure the Icelandic Prime Minister that Her Majesty's Government wished to solve the fisheries dispute between our two countries by negotiation, and that British Ministers were willing to resume negotiations anywhere and at any time.
