Mr. John Marshall

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations have been made to the Soviet Government about their failure to grant an exit visa to Solomon Smolyar of Leningrad who has been offered treatment at the Rambam medical centre in Haifa.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

Mr. Smolyar's case is among those on which we regularly press the Soviet authorities, and has been raised again recently. We shall keep up the pressure until there is a satisfactory outcome.
