HC Deb 07 November 1966 vol 735 c202W
48. Mr. Eldon Griffiths

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will make a statement on his official visit to Berlin.

Mr. George Brown

I had very useful talks with the Governing Mayor Herr Brandt, and was able to see something of the remarkable development of the city.

I was very glad to have the opportunity of emphasising the determination of Her Majesty's Government to continue to play their full part in maintaining the freedom of the people of West Berlin.

Mr. Heffer

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what plans he has to visit Eastern European Countries controlled by Communist Governments; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. George Brown

My right hon. Friend the then Foreign Secretary had planned to visit Rumania and Bulgaria in September. I certainly intend to visit Eastern Europe but it has not yet proved possible to fix dates.
