HC Deb 25 January 1978 vol 942 c671W
40. Mr. Wyn Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will take steps to ensure that he is automatically and immediately informed when British subjects, working or holidaying in Spain, are detained under military or civilian jurisdiction.

Mr. Judd

The 1961 consular convention between the United Kingdom and Spain provides for the authorities of either State to inform the appropriate consular officer of the detention of a national of the other State without delay.
