HC Deb 29 October 1980 vol 991 cc291-2W
24. Mr. Russell Johnston

asked the Lord Privy Seal what representations have been made recently to the Government of Vietnam regarding the continuing flight of its citizens from persecution.

Mr. Blaker

We are satisfied that the Vietnamese Government are well aware of the views which Her Majesty's Government, and all civilised Governments, hold on those Vietnamese policies which have caused the outflow of boat refugees. I raised the question with the Vietnamese Ambassador on 6 May. I also drew attention to it in my speech to the Geneva conference on Cambodian relief on 26 May.
