HC Deb 28 February 1990 vol 168 c207W
Mr. Latham

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has made to the Soviet Government regarding recent anti-Jewish publicity; and whether he will seek an assurance that the Soviet authorities will discourage such outbursts.

Mr. Maude

We have made numerous representations to the Soviet authorities about the plight of Soviet Jewry. Incitement to racial hatred is illegal in the Soviet Union. It is encouraging that the extremist organisation Pamyat is currently being prosecuted under this law.
