HC Deb 07 February 1983 vol 36 c275W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what indications were given to Mr. J. B. Ure on his visit to Argentina in 1981 that the Argentine Government wished a wider agreement on the Falkland Islands which would include economic co-operation.
