BRITISH PROTEST: During yesterday’s session of Parliament, the Conservative member Mr Charles Mott-Radclyffe asked if the Foreign Office was aware of the hostile tone of recent Athens radio broadcasts on Cyprus and if the British ambassador in Athens had made any protest. The foreign secretary, Mr Anthony Nutting, replied as follows: «Her Majesty’s ambassador in Athens has been instructed to make further protests to the Greek government.» POSTAGE STAMP: London, 1 – A letter from Athens bearing a light blue Greek stamp valued at 2 drachmas has caused a stir among parliamentary and press circles in London. The stamp depicts the minutes of a debate of July 29 on the situation in Cyprus. The name of Sir Winston Churchill is clearly visible, along with those of three other members of Parliament, one from the Conservative Party and two from the Labour Party. DIMITRIOS GALANIS: Tomorrow at 7 p.m. at the Parnassos Hall, the Greek engraver Mr Dimitrios Galanis will give a talk on the subject: «Several Issues Related to Art.» The lecture is being organized by the Hellenic-French Association.
