HC Deb 12 February 1968 vol 758 c258W
24. Dr. Gray

asked the Minister of Technology what kinds of technical cooperation are envisaged in the Anglo-Soviet Agreement signed on 19th January 1968; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Benn:

The Agreement provides for a wide range of possible technological collaboration between the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union, including organisations and firms on both sides. The main method of this collaboration, in the initial stages, will be for working parties representing both sides to examine the possibilities of such collaboration in detail within the specific areas to which the two Ministers have agreed. I am forwarding further details to the Hon. Member.
