HC Deb 25 January 1984 vol 52 c600W
Mr. Latham

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether the Soviet Union has yet agreed to resume the mutual and balanced force reductions talks in Vienna on 26 January; or whether it has suggested any alternative date for resumption.

Mr. Luce

Discussions are in train through diplomatic channels for the next round of MBFR talks to begin on 15–16 March. The West had made it clear that it would be prepared to resume negotiations as soon as the East was ready to propose a date.
