    A 12-man delegation of telecommunications experts from the People's Republic of China, which arrived in Britain yesterday (24 August), today Wednesday visited the Edinburgh laboratories of Ferranti Ltd., the electronics company.

    The delegation is headed by Mr. Chung Fu-hsiang, director of the General Administration of Telecommunications in Peking. It left China for Chile on 8 August, at the start of a tour which was reported to include France and Switzerland as well as Britain.

    At Ferranti, the delegation was greeted by Mr. D. McCallum, a director and the company's General Manager, Scotland. The visitors were shown examples of the company's telecommunications products, including long-haul 300/600 channel communications equipment which Ferranti is currently supplying to the British Post Office.
