Former Governor Denounces it as Untrue
Ex gobernador de Falklands afirma que no es cierto
The next group of five British Members of Parliament to make a familiarisation visit to the Falkland Islands all list defence as one of their main interests. Three are directly involved in defence issues. Another is an Opposition Conservative Shadow Foreign Minister.
The Falkland Islands Government has donated £15,000 (22-thousand dollars) towards the restoration of the Royal Marines Memorial in The Mall, London, thus meeting the shortfall needed for the Appeal to reach its target of £85,000 (nearly 125 -thousand dollars).
As Prince William began his ten-week Raleigh International expedition to Southern Chile, the Chilean Government renewed its invitation to his father, the Prince of Wales, to carry out his visit cancelled last year when Anglo-Chilean relations were strained by General Pinochet's detention in the United Kingdom.
Former Argentine Foreign Minister Mr Guido Di Tella confirmed his visit to the Falkland Islands on October 14th during an interview with Heather Briley for MercoPress Newsagency, his first media interview since he left office ten months ago.
Falkland Islands representatives attending the two main political party annual conferences in Britain, just ended, have reported a very supportive response, especially from prospective parliamentary candidates who could be Members of Parliament after the forthcoming General Election, expected to be held next year.
