§ Mr. Rifkind
I have been asked to reply.
Since July 1972 there have been 16 British ministerial visits to Romania. Her Majesty the Queen has not visited Romania in that time.
In the same period there have been 30 such visits to the United Kingdom by Romanian Government Ministers. There was a State visit by President and Mrs. Ceausescu in June 1978.
A list of these visits has been placed in the Library of the House. All except the private and transit visits were made in the exercise of official responsibilities.
