Letter to The Times Corrects Oil Facts

The Times printed a letter from Falklands Government Representative in London, Sukey Cameron, on 25 February.  Writing in rebuttal of assertions made earlier by an Argentinian contributor to the newspaper™s letters page, Ms Cameron pointed out that licences to drill for oil in Falklands territorial waters were issued by the Falkland Islands Government, not by London.  She added that Islanders are entitled to do this by the terms of the Joint Declaration over Oil, issued by the Argentine and British Governments in 1995.
