HC Deb 30 March 1960 vol 620 c133W
63. Mr. S. O. Davies

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the reasons for the official protest made to the Czechoslovak Government concerning the recent Press Conference held by the Czechoslovak Ambassador in London; and what was the reply of the Czechoslovak Government to his protest.

Mr. Selwyn Lloyd

No protest was made. Our representations to the Czechslovak Embassy in London were based on Her Majesty's Government's objections to a breach of the accepted rules of diplomatic usage. The Czechoslovak Government have informed us that their Ambassador's conduct had their full support and that they cannot accept our representations. They have been told that we maintain our view of this behaviour.
