HC Deb 08 May 1968 vol 764 c106W
Mr. Winnick

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what representations have been made to him recently by the Czech Government concerning the settlement of the German frontier with Czechoslovakia; what reply he has sent; and what is the policy of Her Majesty's Government on this matter.

Mr. Goronwy Roberts

My right hon. Friend has received no recent representations from the Czechoslovak Government on this matter. Her Majesty's Government's view, which has been publicly stated on a number of occasions, remains that the final determination of Germany's frontiers cannot be formalised until there is a Peace Treaty. As for Germany's frontier with Czechoslovakia, as my right hon. Friend the Minister of State stated on 24th April, 1967 [Vol. 745, c.207–8], Her Majesty's Government regard the Munich Agreement as completely dead. When the time comes for a final determination of Germany's frontiers by a Peace Treaty, the treaty discussions would start from the basis that Czechoslovak frontiers were not in question. That remains the Government's view.
