HC Deb 23 May 1978 vol 950 c460W
28. Miss Fookes

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement about the possibility of closer military contacts with the Chinese.

Mr. Mulley

I expect there to be visits to the United Kingdom by Chinese military delegations in return for the Chief of the Defence Staff's visit to China. Visits of this kind fit naturally into the pattern of our general relations with China, which are important and increasingly substantial.
