§ 4. Mr. Colvin
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on Anglo-Spanish relations in the light of the recent visit by the Under-Secretary of State, the hon. Member for Enfield, North (Mr. Eggar).
§ Mr. Eggar
Anglo-Spanish relations are excellent. Our trade is booming and tourism continues to expand. As I informed the House on 25 June, during my recent official visit to Spain I had wide ranging discussions including with the Interior Minister Sr. Barrionuevo. I have since followed up some specific points about the safety of British tourists with the Association of British Travel Agents. Apart from tourism, I also discussed co-operation with the Spanish authorities in the fight against drug trafficking.
