HC Deb 05 November 1986 vol 103 c452W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if, pursuant to his answer of 29 October, Official Report, column 318, he will publish details of approaches made (a) to the International Red Cross and (b) the Argentine Government concerning visits to the Falkland Islands by Argentine families.

Mr. Renton

We remain ready to accept a suitably prepared visit by a bona fide group of close relatives under arrangements made and supervised by the International Committee of the Red Cross. We have made our position clear on a number of occasions to, among others, Parliament, the press and the ICRC. We have informed the Argentine Government directly on a number of occasions. Details of such communications are of course confidential. We still await a positive response fron Argentina.
