HC Deb 16 February 1955 vol 537 c51W
73. Mr. E. Fletcher

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what reasons have caused him to curtail his proposed visit to the Far East.

Sir Anthony Eden

As the hon. Member will have seen from a statement issued to the Press last week, I feel that owing to the present international situation I ought not to be absent from this country for so long as I had originally intended.
