§ 55. Sir GERALD STRICKLAND
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps are taken, in the case of aliens with names on a reputed parent's passport, to ascertain that they are under 16 or really children of the passport holder?
§ Captain HACKING
I cannot say what steps foreign Governments take to verify these points before including children in the passports issued to their nationals; but experience does not suggest that there is any laxity in the matter. I may perhaps remind my hon. Friend that a foreign passport is not a ticket of admission to the United Kingdom, and that children whose names are included in an adult's passport, whether they appear to be under 16 or not, are subject to examination at the port of arrival in the same way as other aliens.
