HC Deb 19 February 1958 vol 582 c143W
23. Mr. Teeling

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been called to the refusal by the Chinese Government to allow Lord and Lady Lindsay of Birker to enter China after having already granted them a visa; and what steps Her Majesty's Government is prepared to take to protest against Members of either House of Parliament being treated in this manner.

Mr. Ormsby-Gore

Yes. While we regret the inconvenience caused to Lord Lindsay and his family by the unexpected cancellation of their entry permit, my right hon. and learned Friend does not think that it would be appropriate for Her Majesty's Government to intervene.
