§ Lord Lamont of Lerwick
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Further to the Written Answer by the Lord Williams of Mostyn on 15 April (WA 133) and in view of the fact that members of General Pinochet's staff maintain that some of the police officers who arrested General Pinochet were armed, whether they will reconsider that reply; and whether they will undertake to meet members of General Pinochet's staff to clear up this conflict of evidence. [HL2467]70WA
§ Lord Williams of Mostyn
I have confirmed with the Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis that the police officers who arrested Senator Pinochet were unarmed. We see no need to meet with any members of Senator Pinochet's staff.
