§ Mr. Ashdown
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list in the Official Report all the different types of licences operated or granted by his Department and the year in which they first came into operation.
§ Mr. Rifkind
With the exception of permits under section 3 of the Antarctic Treaty Act 1967 (the powers to issue which have been delegated in accordance with that section), the functions of the Foreign Commonwealth Office do not involve the granting of administrative licences of the kind to which I take the hon. Member to refer.
