HC Deb 21 June 1939 vol 348 cc2263-4W
Colonel Wedgwood

asked the Home Secretary whether he will authorise the issue of a visa to Mr. and Mrs. Julius Lilienthal, of Vienna, applied for as domestic servants by Mr. Reginald Tanner, of Marlow, at the beginning of April; and whether the issue of visas in such cases has been restricted or limited in any way by the Home Office?

Mr. Peake

Inquiries are being made and a reply will be sent to the right hon. and gallant Gentleman as soon as possible. The issue of visas in respect of married couples for joint domestic service in private households depends on (1) the number of such persons who are competent to fill such positions, and (2) on the ability of the voluntary committee to find posts in which the conditions it has been thought necessary to lay down are fulfilled.
