§ Sir M. CONWAY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Swiss Government has proposed to His Majesty's Government a mutual abolition of visas to take effect on 1st December; whether it has made a similar proposal to the Governments of Belgium, Holland, Spain, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark; and whether, under these new circumstances, the Government will reconsider its decision as previously-announced?
§ Mr. SHORTT
My hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. The answer to the first paragraph is in the affirmative. His Majesty's Government have no information as to the second; and in reply to the third paragraph, I cannot say more at the moment than that I will carefully consider the Swiss proposal, which only reached the Home Office yesterday.
