HC Deb 29 July 1982 vol 28 c654W
Mr. Shersby

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will report on the progress that is being made in discussions with the United States Government directed towards the abolition of visas for British subjects visiting the United States of America.

Mr. Onslow

I refer my hon. Friend to the reply which my hon. Friend the Member for Shoreham (Mr. Luce) gave on 8 February.—[Vol. 17, c. 280.] We continue to maintain frequent contact with the United States authorities on this matter. I can report that revised versions of Bills intended to abolish the visa requirement for visitors from certain countries, including the United Kingdom, have recently been introduced into the Senate and the House of Representatives.
