Notes, topics or text 

Lee is Minister of Culture.

BR appeals against the ban on the Bolshoi Company, stating that "... if the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation is to be singled out by the government in having a benefit concert banned, it would then involve political discrimination."

BR supports his appeal citing sections from the Anglo-Soviet Cultural Agreement and performances by the Bolshoi for the Daily Worker in previous years.
