68. Mr. Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the official visit to Saigon of Air Chief Marshal Sir John Grandy.

Mr. Healey

As is customary for the Commander-in-Chief Far East, Air Chief Marshal Grandy has paid a number of courtesy visits to allied and friendly countries in the area since his appointment last May. These include a visit to South Vietnam from February 15th to 19th. In Saigon he called on representatives of the South Vietnamese Government and armed forces, and he also took the opportunity of meeting senior U.S. officers.
