On 6th July 1982, Margaret Thatcher announced that the British government had decided to appoint a Committee of Privy Counsellors, under the chairmanship of Lord Franks, to review the way in which the responsibilities of the British government in relation to the Falkland Islands and their dependencies were discharged in the period leading up to the Argentine invasion of the Falkland Islands on 2nd April 1982. The report was also to take account of all such factors in previous years as were relevant to the government's actions during war. This book provides an account of the report which is broken down into four sections: an account of the dispute between the UK and Argentine from 1965 to 1978; an account of the events and the development of policy under the Thatcher government; an account of events from the landing of a party of Argentine scrap merchants on South Georgia in March 1982 and on the invasion in April 1982; and the judgements of the committee on the aforementioned events.
