asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is now in the position to make a statement on an inter-change of parliamentary delegations with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and the Soviet Government's invitation for a parliamentary delegation from this country to visit the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

On 27th July, the Lord Chancellor and Mr. Speaker received invitations from the Presidents of the Council of the Union and the Council of Nationalities of the Soviet Union for a delegation of Members of both Houses to visit the Soviet Union. The invitations were accepted, the visit has taken place, and the delegation returned to the United Kingdom on 17th October.I am informed that they were most hospitably received and had an interesting and successful visit. I hope that we may in due course have an opportunity of welcoming a delegation from the Supreme Soviet to this country.
