45. Mr. Lewis

asked the Prime Minister whether he will make a statement on his recent discussions with G. M. Malenkov, the Minister of Fuel and Power in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

The Prime Minister (Sir Anthony Eden)

Mr. Malenkov, accompanied by the Soviet Ambassador, paid me a formal call on Monday last week.

Mr. C. Pannell

Would the Prime Minister please answer the supplementary question dealing with these and other Russian visitors? Under what conditions are foreigners allowed to be armed in this country? If our police are not allowed to be armed, why should foreign police be allowed to be armed?

Mr. Speaker

We have passed that Question.

Mr. Daines

Did the Prime Minister receive the customary box of chocolates and the peace medal when he received Mr. Malenkov?

The Prime Minister

I should not care to reveal any diplomatic secrets.
