asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what correspondence he has had with the State Department of the United States of America since 1982, relating to the extraterritorial effect in the United Kingdom of United States laws, and if he will place that correspondence in the Library.

My right hon. and learned Friend has addressed one message to Mr. Shultz and I have exchanged letters with Mr. Dam concerning the extraterritoriality discussions which were held with the United States at official level last year. In this context I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave my hon. Friend the Member for Hertford and Stortford (Mr. Wells) on 26 July 1984 at column 794. It is not our practice to publish confidential correspondence between states.
