HC Deb 20 February 1956 vol 549 c3W
46. Mr. Lewis

asked the Prime Minister if he will extend an invitation to the Israeli Government to send a Parliamentary delegation to this country as the guests of Her Majesty's Government.

The Prime Minister

Visits from foreign Parliamentary delegations are normally arranged through the British Group of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, of which Israel is a member. The last visit from an Israel Parliamentary delegation in 1950 was arranged this way, and it would be right to continue the present practice.
