HC Deb 23 January 1990 vol 165 cc677-8W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what communications he has received from his counterpart in the Soviet Union.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

I was delighted to meet and host a dinner for Academician Chazov, the Minister for Health of the USSR, during his visit to the United Kingdom as a guest of Her Majesty's Government at the end of October last year, and for Mr. Gromyko, Deputy Minister of Health in the USSR, when he was here last week to discuss health trade matters. I have also received correspondence from Academician Chazov.
