HC Deb 22 February 1954 vol 524 c3W
35. Mr. Teeling

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what countries in addition to the United Kingdom are parties to the agreement not to recognise de jure the taking over by Russia of the Baltic States; what arrangements have been agreed between them concerning Baltic balances held in their respective countries; what agreements they have come to about compensation for their own nationals; and what recent steps Her Majesty's Government has taken to renew discussion of these matters with the countries in question.

Mr. Nutting

The answer to the first part of my hon. Friend's Question is that Her Majesty's Government have no agreement with any other country not to recognisede jure the Soviet annexation of the Baltic States. The other parts of the Question do not therefore arise.
