To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the current state of East-West relations.

We welcome the improved atmosphere of East-West relations. Mr. Shultz and Mr. Shevardnadze met in Washington last week. They fixed dates for the Moscow summit (29 May-2 June). We look for further substantive progress in the key areas of arms control, regional issues and human rights.
