§ 21. Mr. Ian Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the outcome of recent negotiations on conventional force levels in Europe.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
Two negotiations—one on conventional armed forces in Europe and one on confidence and security-building measures—began in Vienna on 6 March. The discussions have got off to a good businesslike start. My right hon. and learned Friend presented radical western proposals for both sets of talks on 6 March. We now look for a response from the east.
