HC Deb 19 December 1966 vol 738 c203W
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.
