HC Deb 01 November 1916 vol 86 c1697
14. Major HUNT

asked whether Miss Hobhouse had a passport from the Foreign Office; and, if so, whether she stated for what purpose she was going abroad?


A passport was issued to Miss Hobhouse in March, 1915, to travel to Italy. She stated that she desired to visit that country for reasons of health.

Major HUNT

In view of the fact that her statement was not correct, can the right hon. Gentleman say whether she is going to be prosecuted like any ordinary woman, or is she going to be protected by high personages—


The hon. and gallant Member must give notice of that question.
