HC Deb 18 June 1964 vol 696 cc222-3W
70. Mr. Fernyhough

asked the Secretary of Stare for Foreign Affairs what representations Her Majesty's Government have made to the United States of America about the negotiations now taking place between the United States of America and Rumania for the possible sale of a nuclear power plant by the former to the latter, in view of the embargo which has hitherto applied to the export of such plant from western countries to East Europe.

Mr. R. A. Butler

There is no question of the United States Government's wishing to flout the embargo and their action does not call for any representations to them on the part of Her Majesty's Government.
