Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Prime Minister whether, in discussions with representatives of the United States Government prior to the recent attack upon Libya, it was made clear that one of the main objectives was the elimination of Colonel Gaddafi and his headquarters.

The Prime Minister

I refer the hon. Gentleman to the reply I gave to him on 24 April at column 421.

Mr. Campbell-Savours

asked the Prime Minister at what precise time on what date she gave her formal agreement to President Reagan for the use of air bases in the United Kingdom for the attack on Libya; whether she at any time prior to giving her formal agreement indicated her provisional approval; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

I have nothing further to add to my statement in the House on 15 April and my speech in the debate on 16 April.
