§ Mr. Winnick
asked the Prime Minister how Her Majesty's Government intend to respond to the invitation from the Soviet authorities for Her Majesty's Government to be represented in Moscow at the 40th anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany; and if she will make a statement.
§ The Prime Minister
The Soviet ambassador has communicated an oral invitation to us to send a small delegation to the ceremonies in Moscow commemorating the end of the war. We asked for clarification of the nature of the events to which the delegation was being invited. Our response will be considered in the light of this clarification. We shall also be discussing these matters with our partners and allies.
