HC Deb 13 June 1989 vol 154 c396W
26. Mr. Denzil Davies

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether he has any plans to meet in the near future the Defence Minister of the Federal Republic of Germany; and what matters he proposes to discuss.

53. Mr. Dykes

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he next plans to hold talks with his counterpart in the Federal Republic of Germany on mutual defence subjects.

Mr. Younger

I met Dr. Stoltenberg at the meeting of NATO's defence planning committee on 8–9 June, and we also met in London on 26 May for substantive discussions on a wide range of subjects of mutual defence interest. I have no immediate plans for a further bilateral meeting, but I expect to see Dr. Stoltenberg when the independent European programme group meets at ministerial level later this month.
