HC Deb 26 June 1985 vol 81 c408W
36. Mr. Meadowcroft

asked the Secretary of State far Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he is satisfied with the arrangements he has made to seek to ensure the safety of British citizens resident in Argentina.

Mr. Renton

Since the break in diplomatic relations between Britain and Argentina in 1982, the Swiss Government have acted as protecting power with responsibility for British interests and British residents in Argentina. The British interests section of the embassy of Switzerland offers consular services. These arrangements are the most satisfactory ones possible in the unusual circumstances.
