Summary note
A file of correspondence covering visits to the U.K. by tourists and conference delegates from the Soviet bloc. The correspondence covers a Parliamentary Question on tourism to Britain from the Soviet Union, amid claims that the number of Soviet citizens visiting Britain has fallen due to their country's shortage of sterling -- and discussion of the need for the British government to make arrangements for the provision of currency exchange with the Soviet Union. Further commentary includes a request for assistance in the issuing of visas to Polish, Yugoslav, Czechoslovak, and Bulgarian delegates to an Esperanto Congress in Stoke-on-Trent.
