    A GROUP OF JAPANESE BUSINESSMEN ARRIVED IN LONDON TODAY (WEDNESDAY) ON THE FIRST STAGE OF A TOUR OF EUROPEAN AND NORTH AMERICAN COUNTRIES. MR. SATO, FORMER MINISTER OF INTERNATIONAL TRADE AND INDUSTRY, LEADING THE GROUP, SAID THEY WERE ANXIOUS TO TALK TO PEOPLE OF "ALL POLITICAL PARTIES," DURING THEIR STAY IN BRITAIN.

    AN EARLY VISIT ON THEIR ITINERARY WAS TO THE BOARD OF TRADE, WHERE THEY MET MR FREDERICK ERROLL, PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE.

    THE VISITORS DESCRIBED THEIR SIX-DAY VISIT AS "PRIVATE" BUT THEY PLAN TO SEE MR R.A.BUTLER, THE DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER, AND POSSIBLY PRIME MINISTER MACMILLAN.

    MR SATO, SPEAKING OF THE PEOPLE HE HOPED TO MEET, SAID "NOW I AM NO LONGER A MINISTER, I CAN DO THIS FROM A FREER STANDPOINT." HE SAID THE PARTY WERE TO VISIT THE COMMON MARKET COUNTRIES, TO STUDY THE POSITION FIRST-HAND FROM THE COUNTRIES INVOLVED. AFTER LEAVING BRITAIN THEY ARE TO TRAVEL TO COLOGNE.

    (LAST MONTH BRITAIN AND JAPAN FINISHED A ROUND OF TALKS IN TOKYO ON A TREATY OF COMMERCE AND NAVIGATION. BEFORE THE TREATY IS SIGNED BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES, FURTHER TALKS ARE TO BE HELD IN LONDON. THE SIGNING IS EXPECTED TO TAKE PLACE DURING PRIME MINSTER IKEDA'S VISIT TO BRITAIN DURING NOVEMBER.)
