§ Mr. Latham
asked the Prime Minister whether she will make a statement on the state of relations with the Republic of Ireland.
§ The Prime Minister:
As I said in my reply to my hon. Friend on 15 July—tVol. 27, c. 4291—our relations with the Republic have suffered recently. Our future relations will inevitably depend on the attitude of the Irish Government. It is our long term aim to foster close relations with all our EEC partners.
