HC Deb 11 February 1959 vol 599 c198W
68. Mr. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will give the reasons why Her Majesty's Government will not grant recognition to the East German Government.

Mr. Profumo

The reasons were given in the reply which my right hon. Friend gave to the hon. Member for Govan (Mr. Rankin) on 19th May last, to which I have nothing to add.
