asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that permission to enter this country has been refused to the Albanian, Hungarian, Bulgarian and Roumanian youth delegations chosen to represent these countries at the World Youth Conference to be held in London shortly; and whether he will immediately reconsider this refusal to issue permits in view of the importance for the future peace of the world that the youth of all countries should be brought into contact with one another.
