HL Deb 10 May 1988 vol 496 c1116WA
Lord Chelwood

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the undertaking given by the Soviet Foreign Ministry to the Rev. Dr. Richard Rodgers, that Vasili Shipilov would be released from a "psychiatric" hospital to a sanatorium, has now been carried out.

The Minister of State for Defence Procurement (Lord Trefgarne)

No. We therefore remain concerned about Mr. Shipilov and continue to press the Soviet authorities for his promised release.
