§ Mr. Ron Lewis
asked the Minister of Health what kind of reciprocal health service schemes exist between the United Kingdom and East European countries; with which countries they have been negotiated; and if he is aware that there is confusion in British embassies in Eastern Europe about where and whether they exist.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
There are comprehensive reciprocal health service arrangements with Yugoslavia; a medical services convention is being negotiated with Bulgaria; and similar negotiations with other East European countries are proposed. I am not aware of any foundation for the last part of my hon. Friend's Question, but this would be a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.
