HC Deb 11 March 1980 vol 980 c529W
Sir Frederic Bennett

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether Her Majesty's Government intend to seek agreement in the European conference of Ministers responsible for sport on a common position with regard to the Olympic Games in Moscow, as suggested in resolution 719 of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

Mr. Monro

I shall certainly be trying to reach such agreement when I attend the meeting of the informal working party of Council of Europe Sports Ministers in Strasbourg on 20–21 March. The Moscow Olympics will be the main item on the agenda.
