HC Deb 07 May 1982 vol 23 c159W
Mr Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether, in view of the negotiation by the Wells Fargo California Bank of a 35 million dollar loan to Argentina, he will request the United States Government to stop such a loan until such time as the Government of the Argentine implement the resolution of the United Nations Security Council and leave the Falkland Islands.

Mr. Rifkind

I understand that the loan agreement for $35 million in which the Wells Fargo Bank is participating was signed in March, before the Argentine invasion of the Falkland Islands.
