HC Deb 16 January 1964 vol 687 cc44-5W
17. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why he refused the entry to the United Kingdom of M. Moisé Tshombe, who had been invited to address the Institute of Race Relations at Chatham House.

Mr. Brooke

There was no discrimination againstMr. Tshombe personally involved in tins case, neither was there any information in my hands about his being invited here to address the Institute of Race Relations. He applied for a visa to enable him to pay a short private visit to the United Kingdom, and it was solely because he did not appear to possess an acceptable travel document that, in accordance with normal practice, a visa was refused.
