HC Deb 16 November 1982 vol 32 cc118-9W
Mr. Foulkes

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what diplomatic staff in post at the British embassy in Argentina at the time of the invasion of the Falkland Islands have been appointed to other posts; and if he will list the staff and posts involved.

Mr. Pym

Only two members of the Diplomatic Service who were serving in the British Embassy in Argentina on 2 April 1982 have been appointed to other posts overseas. The Ambassador, Mr. A. J. Williams, is now leader of the United Kingdom delegation to the Madrid CSCE review meeting and Mr. R. M. Jackson, counsellor (commercial), has recently taken up an appointment as counsellor in the British embassy in Stockholm. All the others have returned to duties in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, except for those who remain in the British interests section of the Swiss embassy, Buenos Aires.
