01-09-1999  

Radio Prague, September 1st - The British Embassy in Prague has confirmed that Home Office representatives were due to arrive in the Czech capital on Tuesday, to discuss technical conditions surrounding the possible re-imposition of visas for Czech citizens.

An embassy spokesman said it was a regular informal working visit which had received excessive attention by the Czech media. He added that the embassy would not release details of the talks. There has been rising speculation in recent months that London may be on the verge of re-imposing visas for Czechs, following a steady influx of Roma or gypsy asylum-seekers. The British government has repeatedly stressed that re-imposing visas would be a last-resort solution.
