Q39.

asked the Prime Minister what contact he has had with President Amin of Uganda recently.

I sent telegrams to President Amin on 27th March, 14th April and 10th June. These were all in response to messages to me from President Amin. Additionally, on 12th and 19th June I sent further telegrams, both of which were followed by identical signed letters concerning the case of Mr. Denis Hills. The statement made by my right hon. Friend the Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary on 16th June was also transmitted to the Ugandan authorities in London and Kampala soon after it was delivered. As the hon. Gentleman knows, my right hon. Friend the Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary made a further statement to the House on Monday 23rd June.
