§ Mr. Onslow
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why Professor Vivali Kostamarov has been refused a United Kingdom entry visa; and how many other Union of Soviet Socialist Republic officials have similarly been refused visas in the past 12 months.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
Because I decided that his exclusion was conducive to the public good. During the past 12 months three other citizens of the USSR have been refused visas on the same ground.
