  • Description

    VISNEWS filmed a party of six Soviet political leaders on arrival at London Airport Mar 13 for a ten-day visit as guests of the Anglo-Russian Parliamentary Committee of Labour M.P.'s.

    Mr. Jakob Malik, Russian Ambassador to London, and various Labour Members of Parliament were at london Airport to greet the delegation led by Kruschev's right hand man, Mikhail Suslov, as they stepped from a Russian T.U.104.

    Even though Mr. Suslov is a very important Russian, the red carpet was conspicuous by its absence. Reason...this is an unofficial visit.

    An extensive programme has been arranged, including time for talks with M.P's and Party leaders. They will lay a wreath on Karl Marx's grave at Highgate Cemetery to mark the 76th anniversary of his death, visit Crawley New Town, the House of Commons, factories and some provincial centres.
