HC Deb 18 November 1968 vol 773 cc190-1W
58. Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs at what level Her Majesty's Government was represented, Ministerially and diplomatically, respectively, at celebrations in London and foreign capitals at this year's celebrations of the Russian Revolution.

Mr. Michael Stewart

No Ministers attended the Soviet Ambassador's reception in London. Some officials were present. Her Majesty's Ambassador in Moscow did not attend either the Soviet Government's reception or the military parade. His Defence Attaches attended the latter. In other foreign capitals Heads of Her Majesty's Missions were represented at receptions by Counsellors or junior officials.
