§ Sir W. de FRECE
asked the Minister of Labour whether any embargo and, if so, what, is placed on British actors, music hall artists, musicians and film artists in any foreign countries; and how in each case our own policy in respect to these artists from abroad compares with those applied to our own artists?
§ Mr. SHAW
I regret that I have no exact information as to the restrictions imposed on British threatrical and music hall artists in foreign countries. The 3123W policy of my Department in administering the Aliens Restriction Order is dictated by the state of employment in the particular industry in this country. Permits are, however, not usually refused to foreign artists of established reputation for short visits.
