HC Deb 10 April 1967 vol 744 c118W
Sir W. Teeling

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs by what authority he prevented the publication by the President of the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce, then in London, of an official statement by the Hungarian Finance Minister concerning the negotiations on Hungarian bonds, details of which have been sent to him by the hon. Member for Brighton, Pavilion.

Mr. William Rodgers

By agreement with the Hungarians, the negotiations on the Hungarian bonded debt are confidential. Exchanges are still continuing. There has, therefore, been no question of an official statement by either side at this stage.
