§ Mr. Brotherton
asked the Lord Privy Seal what restrictions there are on the travel of British officials in the Soviet Union, East Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria.
§ Mr. Blaker
British and other foreign officials resident in Moscow, except ambassadors, are required by the Soviet authorities to give 24 hours' notice of travel by car, and 48 hours' notice of travel by other means to destinations beyond 40 km from central Moscow. Certain areas within this radius, and over one-fifth of the remainder of the Soviet Union, are closed to foreigners. There are no similar restrictions on the travel of British officials in the other countries named.
