My right hon. Friend the Minister of Technology is going to Moscow today. The Soviet Minister for Foreign Trade is arriving here this week. I shall be going to Moscow on 19th May. A visit to discuss air services is under consideration and the Soviet Minister of Agriculture will be coming to the United Kingdom next month. A number of other Ministerial visits, in both directions, are under discussion, but I cannot, of course, give details until these have been agreed with the Soviet Government.
I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply. Can he ensure that all possible steps will be taken to further good relations between the Soviet Union and this country? Will he do what he can to reciprocate the gestures of friendship made by Mr. Kosygin to this country?
