§ 22. Sir John Gilmour
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Common-wealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the future of the Falkland Islands.
§ Mr. Rowlands
Her Majesty's Government continue to desire a durable and prosperous future for the Falkland Islands. The publication, on 20th July, of Lord Shackleton's economic report on the Islands provides a fresh opportunity to consider how such a future can best be assured.
