HC Deb 24 October 1978 vol 955 c870W
Mr. Kershaw

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what consultations he has had with Ministers of allied countries with the purpose of co-ordinating national policies against terrorist threats and attacks; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

I maintain close contact with my colleagues in allied countries. In particular, following a United Kingdom initiative, Ministers of the European Community with responsibility for combating terrorism have met regularly and have agreed on arrangements for co-operation and exchanging information about terrorist activities and techniques for dealing with terrorist incidents. The next ministerial meeting will be in Bonn next month.
