Prince Ernst Rüdiger von Starhemberg, head of the "powerful Facist Heimwehr"  today declared that "laws banishing members of the Habsburg dynasty from Austria," be repealed, reports the Associated Press.

Prince von Starhemberg also calls for stop the confiscation of Habsburg property.

He was asked about the "possible restoration" of the monarchy.  He said it "is almost to answer while we are in the midst of our work of reconstruction, particularly because we are not sure it could be kept a purely Austrian question."
