§ Sir Dudley Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the United Kingdom's current relationship with Greenland; when a Minister of the Crown or senior official last visited there; and if any such visit is planned in the near future.
§ Mr. Maude
Greenland is an autonomous region of Denmark, with which the United Kingdom enjoys good relations. The last visit to Greenland by a senior United Kingdom representative was by Her Majesty's ambassador at Copenhagen in February 1990. During that visit, the ambassador installed the first honorary British consul. There are no plans for other visits in the immediate future.
