§ Q39. Mr. Dalyell
asked the Prime Minister what response Her Majesty's Government have had from the Government of Argentina to the United Kingdom action of Monday 8 July, ending the ban on Argentine goods entering Britain; and if she will make a statement.
§ The Prime Minister
The Argentine Government's statement of 10 July described our action as a "positive act". But it went on to reiterate their insistence on British agreement to discuss sovereignty as a pre-condition for discussion of practical measures to improve bilateral relations. This is, of course, unacceptable. We look to them to make a more constructive response to our initiative.
