HC Deb 08 November 1950 vol 480 cc58-9W
80. Mr. Bevins

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the policy of his Department as to the issuing of passports to British nationals wishing to visit the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

Mr. Ernest Davies

There is no restriction on the issue of passports to British subjects wishing to visit the U.S.S.R. Persons visiting the U.S.S.R. or any Iron Curtain country are however advised, in their own interests, to furnish the nearest British consular officer on arrival with particulars of their passports, home addresses and details of their itinerary. They are further advised to keep in touch with the British consulate during their visit, and, after leaving the country, to notify the consul to whom they last reported.
