HC Deb 16 July 1984 vol 64 c60W
Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he has initiated any international action in response to Israel's seizure on the high seas of a Cypriot vessel and the kidnapping of some of its passengers.

Mr. Luce

No. No United Kingdom ship was involved in this incident. I understand that the Cyprus Government have protested to the Israeli authorities. Our support for the principle of freedom of navigation is well-known, and we of course condemn any violation of it.
