§ 19. Mr. Peyton
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what consultations are held between Her Majesty's Government and the United Nations 1791 Command before a British subject is given permission to enter the Korean war zone.
§ Mr. Nutting
No consultations are held between Her Majesty's Government and the United Nations Command. Clearance for official civilian visitors is applied for by Her Majesty's Embassy in Tokyo. Clearance for military personnel is obtained through military channels. Other civilians must apply in person to the Adjutant General's section of the United Nations Command in Tokyo; if their application is approved, they must then obtain a Korean visa from the Korean Mission there.
§ Mr. Peyton
Would my hon. Friend indicate to the United Nations Command that it would, in the view of Her Majesty's Government, be most undesirable to give facilities to the Dean of Canterbury in view of his determination on every possible occasion to blacken the name of this country by bringing forward charges which are quite unfounded and entirely worthless?
§ Mr. Nutting
I have no doubt that the United Nations Command, who decide upon these matters, have taken due note of the remarks and allegations made by the Dean of Canterbury, and have drawn the appropriate conclusion from them. With reference to the Dean of Canterbury's activities and the effect which they may have on the reputation of this country, we consider that his charges have already been amply answered and completely destroyed.
