§ Mr. Anderson
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs whether he will make a statement on the resumption of diplomatic relations with Tanzania.
§ Mr. George Thomson
I am happy to say that diplomatic relations between Tanzania and Britain were resumed on 4th July. Her Majesty's Government warmly welcome the resumption of relations and look forward to the opportunities this will provide for full and frank discussions on matters of mutual interest. It is expected that High Commissioners will take up residence in the respective capitals; shortly. In the interim, the respective Heads of Interests Sections will become Acting High Commissioners.
