On 13 June 1967 several senior politicians from Belgium visited CERN, including Mr. J. Van Offelen (Minister for Economic Affairs), Mr. M. Toussaint (Minister for Education) and Mr. R. Gruslin (Governor of the Province of Namur). They were welcomed by Mr. J. Willems, Belgian representative at the CERN Council, and by Professor L. Van Hove, Director of the Theoretical Physics Department. After a talk on the work of CERN by Professor Van Hove, the visitors toured the site. The visit concluded with a discussion of the implications for a country if the 300-GeV Laboratory is set up on its territory. Belgium has put forward a site at Focant in the Province of Namur.
