HC Deb 14 February 1962 vol 653 c159W
74. Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he is aware that the three-power decision to withhold travel permits from East German athletes has jeopardised a number of world sports meetings; and whether he will try to secure some relaxation of the decision.

Mr. Heath

Yes; but the circumstances which gave rise to the decision last August of the three Western Powers, supported by their North Atlantic allies, to withhold travel documents from East Germans, have not changed.
