Mr. Michael Ancram

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (1) which (a) Government Ministers and (b) officials from his Department will attend the South Atlantic Council meeting in Buenos Aires later this year; [118772]

(2) what offers of assistance have been made by the British Ambassador to Argentina to the South Atlantic Council towards its forthcoming conference in Buenos Aires. [118773]

Mr. Straw

We are unaware of any plans for a meeting of the South Atlantic Council in Buenos Aires this year. However, a meeting of the Argentine British Conference will be held in Buenos Aires on 25–26 October, for which the British Ambassador has agreed to offer a reception at his Residence. No decisions have yet been taken on UK participation at the meeting.
