§ Mr. Mellor
My right hon. and learned Friend last raised the issue of Soviet citizens awaiting permission to emigrate with the Soviet Foreign Minister at Brize Norton on 7 December, when he handed over a list of cases about which we had received representations, including that of Mr. Boris Chernobilsky and his family. My right hon. and learned Friend expects to press for rapid progress again when he visits the Soviet Union from 14–17 February.
