HC Deb 27 June 1980 vol 987 c342W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Lord Privy Seal how many meetings have taken place between members of his Department and diplomats of the Indonesian Embassy since January; and whether he plans to visit Indonesia before the end of the current year.

Mr. Blaker

Members of the Department are in frequent contact with the Indonesian Embassy but no record is kept of the number of such contacts. My right hon. and noble Friend met the Indonesian Foreign Minister, Professor Mochtar, at the EC/ASEAN meeting on 6 March. Professor Mochtar called on my right hon. Friend and me in the same month, and I met him in Geneva at the Cambodia relief meeting on 26 May. My right hon. Friend has no plans to visit Indonesia this year but I was there in September 1979, shortly before the State visit of President Soeharto to this country.
