  • Description

    A VISIT BY QUEEN ELIZABETH TO WEST GERMANY. IT WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY TAKE PLACE THIS YEAR, BUT NO ARRANGEMENTS WILL BE MADE UNTIL ONE OR TWO MONTHS AFTER THE BIRTH OF HER BABY, EXPECTED IN MARCH.

    THIS WAS ONE OF THE OUTCOMES OF PROFESSOR LUDWIG ERHARD'S OFFICIAL VISIT TO LONDON. HE FLEW BACK TO BONN TONIGHT (THURSDAY).

    AND SO ENDED TWO DAYS OF INTENSIVE TALKS BETWEEN THE WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR AND HIS HOST, SIR ALEC DOUGLAS-HOME, THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER.

    THEY MET AGAIN THIS MORNING AT NO. 10 DOWNING STREET, THE PRIME MINISTER'S OFFICIAL LONDON RESIDENCE, AND AT A LUNCH GIVEN BY PROFESSOR ERHARD AT THE WEST GERMAN EMBASSY.

    A COMMUNIQUE SAID THE TALKS - HELD IN A "MOST CORDIAL" ATMOSPHERE - ALSO RESULTED IN GREATER UNDERSTANDING AND AGREEMENT ON STRENGTHENING ANGLO-GERMAN TIES. BRITAIN PROMISED THAT SHE WOULD MAINTAIN THE PRESENT STRENGTH OF THE RHINE-BASED FORCES, WHILE WEST GERMANY AGREED TO SETTLE BY THE END OF MARCH OUTSTANDING PAYMENTS ON CURRENT TROOP STATIONING COSTS.

    PROFESSOR ERHARD INVITED SIR ALEC TO PAY A RETURN VISIT TO WEST GERMANY. THE PRIME MINISTER AGREED, BUT NO DATE HAS BEEN FIXED.

    EARLIER TODAY, THE WEST GERMAN LEADER, WHO WAS ACCOMPANIED BY FOREIGN MINISTER GERHARD SCHROEDER, BROKE OFF THE OFFICIAL ROUTINE TO PAY A FIVE-MINUTE VISIT TO LONDON'S GERMAN FOOD CENTRE.

    THERE HE AND DR. SCHROEDER SAMPLED SOME HOME BAKED COOKING - JUST THE THING FOR MORNING TEA. AFTERWARDS, HE LIT UP ONE OF HIS BIG CIGARS.
