§ 25. Mr. Shersby
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if the new school hostel at Port Stanley, Falkland Islands, is yet in use; and how many pupils will be provided with boarding places.
§ Mr. Neil Marten
The new school hostel had not been made ready for use by the time of the Argentine invasion. It is designed to accommodate 80 pupils. The building is now being used by the military authorities in the Falkland Islands. Her Majesty's Government and the Government of the Falkland Islands are therefore currently considering alternative means of meeting the boarding requirements.
