§ Mr. Sloan
Is my hon. Friend aware of the bitter comment that is being made in United States newspapers and elsewhere regarding this visit, especially in regard to the ostentatious display of jewellery and finery, at a period when the people of this country are strictly rationed; and, if so, will he make representations to his right hon. Friend the Prime Minister to have this gentleman and his wife recalled, since their visit is doing a certain amount of harm and certainly no good?
§ Mr. Palmer
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the Press reports which have been referred to are by no means representative of the general welcome given in the United States to the Duke and Duchess?
