HC Deb 24 July 1946 vol 426 c19W
118. Mr. Pickthorn

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many British correspondents were refused admission into Yugoslavia to report the Mihailovitch trial; and how many correspondents wishing to report on U.N.R.R.A. activities in Yugoslavia have also been refused admission.

Mr. Bevin

I am aware of one case in which a representative of the Press who wished to investigate the distribution of U.N.R.R.A. goods and also to report on the Mihalovitch trial was refused admission to Yugoslavia. I understand, however, that she had in the first instance attempted to enter the country without the necessary authority, and the Yugoslav Government did not feel able to accede to a request by His. Majesty's representative that, in spite of this, she should be granted a visa. No other cases in which correspondents have been refused permission to enter Yugoslavia have been brought to my notice.
