HC Deb 12 November 1964 vol 701 c104W
Mr. A. Lewis

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that during the spring of 1965 there is to be held the Leipzig Trade Fair; and, as this will be the 800th year for such trade fairs, if he will visit Leipzig during this Fair.

Mr. Redhead

No. Her Majesty's Government do not recognise the East German authorities and it would not be in accord with this policy for a Minister to attend this or any other fair organised by the East German authorities.
