HC Deb 01 December 1969 vol 792 cc200-1W
Dame Joan Vickers

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the policy of the Government with regard to Resolution No. 420 on the situation in Czecholslovakia, which was adopted by the Consultative Assembly of the Council of Europe on 30th September 1969; and whether they will continue to welcome refugees from Czechoslovakia and grant them living conditions.

Mr. George Thomson

Her Majesty's Government's views on the invasion of Czechoslovakia were stated in the debate on 26th August, 1968. In the same debate my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister informed the House of the policy which we follow towards Czechoslovak nationals wishing to remain in this country. That policy has not been changed.—[Vol. 769, c. 1273–1420.]
