HC Deb 08 July 2002 vol 388 c717W
Mr. Jenkin

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what events he has attended this year in connection with Falklands conflict commemorations. [67570]

Mr. Ingram

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Defence visited the Falklands Islands in March and attended a service of commemoration at the Liberation Memorial in Stanley.

Following his visit to the islands he also laid a wreath at the memorial in Buenos Aires to commemorate the Argentine service men who died during the conflict.

I visited the islands in June to represent Her Majesty's Government at commemorations to mark the 20th anniversary of the end of the conflict.
