HC Deb 16 February 1970 vol 796 cc19-20W
91. Mr. Ian Lloyd

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what progress is being made in the furtherance of closer relations with Italy, particularly in the technological field.

Mr. Luard

The close co-operation presaged in the joint communiqué issued at the close of President Saragat's State Visit last April is proceeding well. In particular, as the hon. Member will be aware, the Anglo-Italian Science and Technology Committee held a successful inaugural meeting in Rome on 14th and 15th January. I have arranged for a copy of the communiqué issued at the close of that meeting to be put in the Library of the House.
