§ Lord James Douglas Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether the contract between Salvesens and Argentine scrap metal dealers in relation to property in South Georgia will be allowed to proceed.
§ Mr. Onslow
The contract is between Christian Salvesen Ltd. and Constantino Davidoff and Her Majesty's Government have no standing in relation to it. However, the Government have made it clear to Salvesens that it would be most unlikely that permission would be granted for Mr. Davidoff to land in South Georgia in the foreseeable future.
