§ 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.
