HC Deb 23 March 1967 vol 743 c311W
Mr. Kelley

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will seek to make the necessary intergovernmental arrangements to enable operators to establish a direct air service between the United Kingdom and the German Democratic Republic; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Jay

I am not prepared to enter into negotiations that would involve the East German authorities, whom Her Majesty's Government do not recognise.
