HC Deb 18 July 1946 vol 425 cc1382-3
54. Mr. Vane

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster at whose invitation Herr Adolf Griemme recently visited this country; what was the object and duration of the visit; and whether any limits were set to his freedom of movement.

Mr. McNeil

Dr. Griemme visited this country as a private individual at the invitation of German Educational Reconstruction, a society organised by British educationalists and anti-Nazi refugees in this country. He visited here to arrange for the return of anti-Nazi educationalists to the British zone, and to see something of British educational institutions. He was in this country for 18 days. No restrictions were imposed on his freedom of movement, but his proposed itinerary had been approved by my hon. Friend.
