HC Deb 22 January 1985 vol 71 c374W
Mr. Anderson

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether the disclosure by the Civil Commissioner, Sir Rex Hunt, of parts of the new constitution to the Falkland Islands Legislative Council in advance of its publication to the House in March was done with his prior consent.

Mr. Renton

Ministers agreed last December that the latest draft of the constitution should be made available by the Civil Commissioner to councillors for their consideration. It was entirely in accordance with normal practice that councillors should be consulted in this way.
