HC Deb 18 October 1945 vol 414 cc1352-3
29. Mr. Butcher

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the hon. Member for Holland with Boston may expect a reply to his letter dated 16th August.

Mr. Ede

I regret that the reply, which I am sending to the hon. Member to-day, has been delayed owing to the tremendous pressure of work falling on the Aliens Branch of my Department.
