Mr. Ron Brown
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement about Alec Archibald, the Scot held by the Thai authorities.
§ Mr. Eggar
Mr. Archibald was sentenced under Thai law to a cumulative total of three years and nine months for a number of offences. He has since been sentenced to serve an additional nine months and is now expected to be discharged from prison on the 17 of September 1988.
We are in touch with his family.
