HC Deb 28 November 1951 vol 494 c1500
24. Mr. Ronald Russell

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will start negotiations for the mutual abolition of visas between the United Kingdom and Spain.

Mr. Nutting

This matter is being considered, but I am not in a position to make a statement at present.

Mr. Russell

Is there any chance of getting these visas abolished before the next holiday season begins?

Mr. Nutting

I sympathise with my hon. Friend in his desire in this matter. While it would be no doubt of advantage to British tourists to abolish visas, and perhaps before the next tourist season begins, there are also other considerations which must affect a final decision.
