HC Deb 28 July 1983 vol 46 c565W
Sir Bernard Braine

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what reply has been received to the joint statement in Bonn on 6 May issued by the Presidency spokesman on behalf of all member states of the European Community, including the United Kingdom, regarding the document issued by the Argentine military junta on 28 April and calling for clarification of the fate of persons who disappeared in the Argentine after March 1976, many of whom are believed to have been tortured and killed by the Argentine security forces; and what further action is contemplated by the partner Governments.

Mr. Whitney

The Argentines have made no response to the statement issued by the Ten on 6 May. A further démarch was made on 28 June when the Ten reaffirmed their demand that the Argentine Government give satisfactory clarification of the fate of missing people.
