§ Sir Derek Walker-Smith
asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he will take a further initiative to secure the release of British subjects held in prison in Angola as former mercenaries.
§ Sir Ian Gilmour
The Government will maintain a close interest in the plight of these men and continue to press for regular consular access which has not so far been forthcoming. However, I regret I cannot undertake to raise the question of their release at the present time.
