HC Deb 15 May 1952 vol 500 cc144-5W
82. Mr. Swingler

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department on what principle he proposes to issue visas to a limited number of foreigners to enter the country to attend the British Youth Peace Festival at Whitsun.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

As I informed my hon. Friend the Member for Wembley, South (Mr. Russell) on 13th March last, I am not prepared to grant facilities to foreigners to attend this festival, and appropriate instructions have been issued to passport control officers abroad and to immigration officers.
