HC Deb 20 November 1946 vol 430 c120W
100. Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will consider approaching the Soviet Government with a view to arranging a goodwill mission of hon. Members from this House to visit the U.S.S.R. on a reciprocal basis.

Mr. McNeil

As my predecessor said in his answer to my hon. Friend on 24th June, a British Parliamentary delegation visited the Soviet Union in January, 1945, and before the suggestion is put forward that a further delegation from this House should visit the U.S.S.R., His Majesty's Government hope that a delegation from the Supreme Soviet will come to this country. Such a visit may be arranged in the New Year.
