§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Prime Minister what response she has made to President Alfonsin's proposals on the future of the Falklands.
§ The Prime Minister
President Alfonsin has made no proposals to me. He has suggested publicly that the United Kingdom must vacate the islands. The answer to that is no. But as my right hon. and learned Friend the Secretary of 143W State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs explained to the House on 18 December, we shall continue to encourage the Argentine Government to match our readiness to improve relations between us.
