HC Deb 30 June 1982 vol 26 c310W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the announcement of the official declaration of the fall of the military junta in Argentina and an announcement that action is to be taken towards the establishment of democracy in that country, she will offer the assistance of Her Majesty's Government in achieving these aims.

The Prime Minister

We naturally welcome the promise of more representative Government in Argentina and will be watching developments closely. It is not for us to become involved in the internal affairs of another country, and I do not think this would be the most auspicious moment to offer the assistance the hon. Gentleman suggests.
