§ Mr. David Atkinson
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, pursuant to the reply of 5 July, Official Report, column 273, what contracts Her Majesty's Government maintain with any of the Baltic states which do not imply de jurérecognition; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Luce
There have on occasions been limited contacts between members of Her Majesty's embassy and officials of the Baltic republics related to specific events when these were in our interests. A case in point was over the organisation of the British element in a trade exhibition in Riga in 1974.
