HC Deb 16 July 1959 vol 609 cc51-2W
63. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why visas for musicians from East Germany invited to this country to celebrate the bicentenary of Handel's death were issued too late to enable them to attend the ceremony.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I am unaware of delay in the grant of visas in cases answering to this description. If the hon. Member will send me details of the cases he has in mind, I will be glad to look into them.
