HC Deb 01 March 1962 vol 654 c184W
Dr. A. Thompson

asked the Prime Minister whether he will officially invite Colonel John Glenn to visit this country to enable the British people to express their regard for his achievement.

The Prime Minister

I very much hope that Colonel Glenn will be able to accept the invitation which I have already sent to him on behalf of Her Majesty's Government through President Kennedy, although I recognise that it may be difficult for him to leave the United States in the near future.
