§ 3. Mr. DOUGLAS HACKING
asked the Home Secretary if he will state the number of passports visaed for Russian subjects desiring to enter this country since the resumption of diplomatic relations with Russia?
§ Mr. CLYNES
From the resumption of diplomatic relations with the U.S.S.R. until yesterday, 224 visas have been authorised for Soviet citizens desirous of travelling to the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. HACKING
Can the right hon. Gentleman say from memory how many have been refused admission during the same period?
§ Sir KINGSLEY WOOD
Is it a fact that the number of admissions shows about 50 per cent. increase over the previous 12 months?
§ Mr. ALBERY
Are any special precautions taken to make sure that all these supposed Soviet citizens are, in fact, Soviet citizens?
§ Lieut.-Colonel ACLAND-TROYTE
Are these people mostly visitors to this country, or are they passing through?
