HC Deb 08 April 1963 vol 675 c104W
Mr. Owen

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will re-examine the travel restriction limits imposed on trade representatives from Russia, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Roumania, who are resident in London, but whose trade missions take them into the provinces.

Mr. Heath

No travel restrictions are imposed on representatives of Poland or Czechoslovakia resident in London.

On 25th March Her Majesty's Government proposed to the Roumanian Government the mutual abolition of travel restrictions in both countries. The Roumanian reply is still awaited.

Her Majesty's Government have also proposed a similar abolition of restrictions on a reciprocal basis on a number of occasions to the Soviet Government without success. This offer remains open.
