Vol. 388 No. 5

Written Answers. - State Visit By Mikhail Gorbachev.


asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs the cost of the recent State visit by President Mikhail Gorbachev.

Successive Governments have held the view that to publish the cost of individual items or events or the total cost of an official or State visit would be regarded as an extreme discourtesy to the distinguished guest.
