A British Foreign Office spokesman, commenting on reports that Prime Minister Levi Eshkol would visit London for talks with Prime Minister Harold Wilson after his visit to the United States this month, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency today that the Foreign Office had no information that Mr. Eshkol would stop over in London.

The spokesman said that, if Mr. Eshkol did visit London en route home from the United States. “we would certainly hope that arrangements could be made for him to see the Prime Minister or the Foreign Secretary or both.” The report of the possible meeting with Prime Minister Harold Wilson emanated from press sources in Jerusalem.
