HC Deb 20 January 1986 vol 90 cc13-4W
Mr. Cohen

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many British books have been republished in the Soviet Union during the last five years; and what is Her Majesty's Government's policy in this regard.

Mr. Peter Morrison

Statistics on the numbers of British books republished in the Soviet Union are not collected. In the United Kingdom-USSR educational, scientific and cultural agreement of 1959, the two Governments agreed, inter alia, to encourage co-operation in the field of publishing and the exchange of books. Her Majesty's Government continue to support co-operation in this and other fields on the basis of mutual benefit.
