To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will seek to obtain a copy of all evidence relating to British subjects that was given to the Congressional inquiry into the Iran-Contra affair; and if he will make a statement.

No. The report of the congressional committees investigating the Iran-Contra affair contains no information to suggest that British subjects have broken United Kingdom law. There is, therefore, no reason to request a copy of all evidence relating to British subjects.
