Alt. Must Leave. (Published in The Times.)

LONDON, June 3. - The Times correspondent at Geneva says there is widespread surprise at the action of the Italian Government in forbidding Swiss workmen to enter Italy and expelling the Swiss domiciled there. None is exempt from expulsion.

An extreme case is that of a Swiss foreman who has been employed for 40 years at a cotton factory at Somazzli.

Switzerland welcomes thousands of Italian labourers and hopes that she will not be compelled to take retaliatory measures.

In view of that statement, of what value is the Prime Minister's argument that international complications might ariseif the Government endeavoured to limit Italian immigration?

Mr Fenton - It is a paltry excuse.
