HC Deb 14 November 1985 vol 86 c234W
Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Prime Minister when she last raised the case of Mr. Raoul Wallenberg with the Government of the USSR; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

We have raised this case with the Soviet authorities four times in the last three years, most recently when the Minister of State, Foreign Office my hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh, Pentlands (Mr. Rifkind) met the Soviet First Deputy Foreign Minister in Moscow in July. Regrettably, the Soviet side has had nothing to add to its position as stated in 1957 to the Swedish ambassador in Moscow.
