HC Deb 04 February 1981 vol 998 c112W
Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what recent steps he has taken on trade with the Soviet Union: and if he will make a statement on the policy of Her Majesty's Government on trade with the Soviet Union.

Mr. Parkinson

There has been no change in the Government's policy that trade should continue to be developed where this is genuinely in the interest of both countries. To this end officials of my Department recently met Soviet officials to review actions under the 1975 United Kingdom /Soviet co-operation agreement.
