To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary will join NATO. 
§ Mr. Tony Lloyd
The Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary will deposit their instruments of accession to the North Atlantic Treaty at a ceremony in Independence, Missouri on 12 March. The Government warmly welcome this, fourth, enlargement of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. It is another step towards overcoming the artificial divisions across our continent created during the Cold War and will help to spread security and stability for the benefit of all.
