HC Deb 08 July 1965 vol 715 c1810
Q5. Mr. Jackson

asked the Prime Minister whether he will invite the Heads of Government of Poland and Rumania to visit London this year.

The Prime Minister

The Rumanian Government have accepted an invitation in principle for a visit to this country by a senior member of their Government, though no dates have yet been fixed. The Polish Foreign Minister and a Polish Deputy Prime Minister visited this country last year and my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary is paying an official visit to Poland in September. No further official visits from either Poland or Rumania are at present under consideration.

Mr. Jackson

Would not the Prime Minister agree that this announced visit indicates a very fine example of the Labour Government doing everything possible to break down the Iron Curtain?

The Prime Minister

I think that it is a fairly continuing proposition that all Governments welcome visits from members of Governments in the East, even though there may still be a number of points of disagreement between us and them.
