§ Mr. Foulkes
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent discussions he has had with the Government of Guatemala concerning the resumptions of consular relations; what conditions the United Kingdom Government have made before consular relations can be resumed; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Renton
I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Stretford on 13 November 1984. Talks have been held at official level but nothing has been decided. It is not normal international practice to impose preconditions on the establishment of consular relations.
