HC Deb 13 December 1982 vol 34 c29W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what progress is being made in tracing the children of Mrs. Barbara Gardner of Stevenson Street, Edge Hill, who were taken to North Yemen in January by their father.

Mr. Hurd

Our embassy in Sana'a is still trying to locate these children and to obtain a welfare report on them. Photographs were sent on 18 November to help in this. The embassy is doing all it properly can but its enquiries will necessarily take some time.
