HC Deb 23 July 1985 vol 83 c492W
Q39. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Prime Minister what response Her Majesty's Government have had from the Government of Argentina to the United Kingdom action of Monday 8 July, ending the ban on Argentine goods entering Britain; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

The Argentine Government's statement of 10 July described our action as a "positive act". But it went on to reiterate their insistence on British agreement to discuss sovereignty as a pre-condition for discussion of practical measures to improve bilateral relations. This is, of course, unacceptable. We look to them to make a more constructive response to our initiative.
