  • Description

    The Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan, reached London Airport today, on completion of his journeys in five Commonwealth countries. He was welcomed by members of his family, senior Ministers, and the High Commissioners of the countries he visited.

    While at Karachi airport yesterday Mr Macmillan took the opportunity to congratulate Aly Khan on his appointment as Pakistan's United Nations delegate. He also had a brief conference with Mr Noon, Pakistan's Prime Minister, before his 'plane took off again.

    It is understood that nine conservative M.P.s who have entered Parliament Minister tabled on Wednesday evening a motion welcoming him home from his Commonwealth tour. The motion refers to the "unique nature" of the Prime Minister's journey. It suggests that the house should record its appreciation of "the contribution he has made to unity and understanding among the peoples of the Commonwealth."
    Mr Macmillan was expected to spend a week-end of intensive work at Chequers. Doubtless there will be a thorough-going inquest into the party's distressing performance at the Rochdale by-election.
