HC Deb 21 July 1958 vol 592 cc21-2
31. Mr. J. Hynd

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the decision of the German Bundestag calling for the setting up of a four-Power Working Party to examine plans for re-unification of Germany has now been communicated to Her Majesty's Government; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ian Harvey

No, Sir. This is a matter for decision by the Federal German Government. If and when a formal approach is received from them, Her Majesty's Government will consider, in consultation with their allies, what action it would be appropriate to take.
