§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (1) whether the Argentine military personnel discovered on Southern Thule were repatriated and by what means; whether they were interrogated; and whether any of their activities could have assisted Argentine naval and air activities after November 1976;
(2) whether there was an Argentine military presence on Southern Thule permanently from December 1976; and whether he has any information as to whether the level of Argentine equipment and personnel varied during the period;
(3) whether Her Majesty's Government will ensure that there will be no Argentine settlement on British dependencies without authorisation in future;
(4) when the Argentine military personnel were lifted from Southern Thule; what work they were undertaking there; and if they had any military implications.
