Mr. Dalyell

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has made to the Syrian Government about the alleged supply to terrorists of Semtex bombs by the Syrian embassy in London prior to 1987.

We broke diplomatic relations with Syria in October 1986 because of official Syrian involvement in the attempt to blow up an E1 Al aircraft with a Semtex bomb.
