HC Deb 05 July 1971 vol 820 c265W
100. Mr. Woodhouse

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what plans he has for the future of the Malta Steering Committee in the light of the Malta Government's wish to renegotiate the Defence Treaty.

Mr. Anthony Royle

The future of the Joint Steering Committee is a matter for joint decision by the Government of Malta and ourselves. In the normal course of events, it is expected that its work would be completed by the end of this year.
