HC Deb 27 July 1982 vol 28 cc492-3W
Mr. Sainsbury

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he is satisfied that all Foreign and Commonwealth Office papers relating to the Falkland Islands issue are available to the committee of inquiry chaired by Lord Franks.

Mr. Onslow

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office have taken steps to ensure that all their papers relevant to the Falklands issue, going back over a number of years, will be fully available to Lord Franks and his colleagues on the Falklands review committee.

I am aware of press reports alleging that certain papers have been destroyed, by shredding, but my inquiries have revealed absolutely no evidence to substantiate them.
