§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he has received a request from the Swedish Government in connection with Captain Alfredo Astiz and his alleged responsibility for the death of Dagmar Hegelin; and, if so, what was the nature of the request.
§ Mr. Onslow
I can confirm that the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has received a request from the Swedish Government concerning an Argentine national captured during operations in South Georgia.
We are considering the matter and will reply to the Swedish Government as soon as possible.
