§ 45. Mr. Campbell-Savours
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions he has had with representatives of the people of the Falkland Islands regarding schemes for compensation should any islanders wish resettlement outwith the islands.
§ Sir Geoffrey Howe
None. The attachment of the Islanders to their way of life has repeatedly been made clear to Ministers, most recently to my right hon. and noble Friend during her visit in February. The results of a recent survey of islander opinion conducted on behalf of140W the United Kingdom Falkland Islands Committee by Marplan confirms that the overwhelming majority of the islanders want to remain under British Sovereignty.
