HC Deb 12 February 1947 vol 433 cc360-1
42. Mr. Francis Noel-Baker

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs why His Majesty's Consul-General at Milan has not yet issued a British passport to Mrs. Carla Freeman, whose present address is Famiglia Martini, via Corti 31, Sta Maria di Rovere, Treviso, who married a British Serviceman last autumn and whose application was sent to the Consulate-General last October; and whether, in view of the delay thus caused to this young lady's journey to London, he will instruct the Consulate-General to issue the passport forthwith.

Mr. Bevin

I have no information concerning Mrs. Carla Freeman, but I have asked His Majesty's Consul-General at Milan for a report.

Mr. Noel-Baker

Is my right hon. Friend aware that since I put down this Question I have had further information, and could he, if I give him the name of the military unit of the husband, ask the Consul-General to act quickly, and get the necessary documents?

Mr. Bevin

Certainly, Sir.

Captain Crookshank

Is not the hon. Member the last person to be so interested in British passports?
