HC Deb 07 November 1983 vol 48 c31W
Mr. Stuart Holland

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will require the high commission in Grenada to confirm the whereabouts and safety of Alice Hawkes, a British citizen normally resident in the constituency of Vauxhall, last known to be in the Holiday Inn, Grand Anse before United States bombs cut off telephone links.

Mr. Whitney

The high commission spoke to Mrs. Hawkes on 24 October. She was safe and well. A member of the consular team from Bridgetown also spoke to her at Point Salines airport on 29 October. She said she had been in St Georges but her passport and personal effects were in Grenville on the opposite side of the island. She intended to travel to Grenville as soon as it was safe to do so. She has not been seen since, but the road to Grenville is now open and it is likely she has returned there. The telephones to Grenville are not yet working but the high commission is trying to make contact with her by radio.
