HC Deb 20 April 1982 vol 22 c72W
Mr. Alan Clark

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to amend the immigration rules following the imposition of a visa requirement on Argentinians.

Mr. Whitelaw

The 1967 visa abolition agreement with the Argentine Republic was suspended by that country on 8 April, and I announced the following morning that from noon all Argentine nationals wishing to enter the United Kingdom would need to obtain visas before travelling. I laid before Parliament the consequent statement of change in Immigration Rules yesterday.
