HC Deb 16 March 1965 vol 708 cc227-8W
34. Mr. Wallace

asked the Postmaster-General, if he will seek to negotiate reciprocal arrangements with other countries whereby visiting licensed amateurs may be allowed to engage in amateur radio transmissions within the country being visited.

Mr. Benn

Yes. Subject to certain conditions being met, I shall in future grant licences to engage in amateur transmissions in this country to licensed radio amateurs who are nationals of countries which are prepared to grant reciprocal facilities to United Kingdom licensed radio amateurs. I shall shortly be taking steps to negotiate such arrangements as my hon. Friend describes.
