HC Deb 14 May 1970 vol 801 c350W
Q11. Mr. Goodhart

asked the Prime Minister what is the practice of his administration about the official attendance of Ministers at cultural events designed to promote links with countries where religious persecution is officially encouraged.

The Prime Minister:

It is the practice of Her Majesty's Government to observe normal diplomatic courtesies towards all States with which we are in diplomatic relations. Official attendance at events of this kind is considered in the light of the prevailing circumstances.
