42. Mr. Robert G. Hughes
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what progress is being made towards ending the physical division of the city of Berlin.
§ Mrs. Chalker
Some progress has been made to alleviate the consequences of the city's division. In particular, there has recently been an increase in the number of visits between east and west by Berliners. The Berlin wall remains however a grim reminder that the underlying problem is far from resolved.
