HC Deb 18 March 1963 vol 674 cc6-7W
40. Mr. Gourlay

asked the Lord Privy Seal when he received the letter sent to him by the hon. Member for Kirkcaldy Burghs regarding the entry of East German citizens to Great Britain; and what reply he has sent.

Mr. Smithers

The first letter was received on 29th January and a reply sent on 1st February. The second letter was received on 14th March. A reply has been sent today stating that the East Germans in question will not be able to visit this country at present because of the agreed Allied policy restricting the issue of temporary travel documents to East Germans.
