§ Mr. Latham
asked the Prime Minister whether she will make a statement on steps taken during the parliamentary recess to improve relations with the United States of America.
§ The Prime Minister
Our relations with the United States remain excellent. It is inevitable that there should be occasional differences even between the closest allies. We have worked hard during the summer to resolve the disputes over the Siberian gas pipeline and United States steel imports from the European Community. On the latter, I am pleased to say that we have been successful. On the pipeline, we have had substantial discussions with the United States Administration and the European Governments involved. These are continuing.
