  • Description

    West German Chancellor, Dr. Konrad Adenauer, visited Buckingham Palace and Clarence House, November 17, to sign the visitors' books, during day one of his two-day official visit to London.

    The Chancellor had earlier arrived at Gatwick Airport. He travelled up to London by train, and was met at Victoria Station by Premier Harold Macmillan and Foreign Secretary, Selwyn Lloyd, with the minimum of ceremony.

    In the evening, a dinner was given in the Chancellor's honour at the British Premier's London residence, 10 Downing Street. Among guests, were members of the British Government, the German Embassy, and the Parliamentary Opposition - including Labour Party leader, Hugh Gaitskell, and newly created Lord Morrison of Lambeth.

    A visit to Sir Winston Churchill's London home by the Chancellor was cancelled. Sir Winston was indisposed.

    It is hoped that this series of talks between Adenauer and Macmillan will help resolve outstanding differences between Britain and Germany.

    During November 18, the Chancellor will go to Chequers, Mr. Macmillans official country residence. Dr. Adenauer will stay there overnight.
