HC Deb 03 December 1941 vol 376 c1150W
Mr. Wedgwood

asked the Home Secretary under what conditions was Miss Frieda Utley given an exit permit to America?

Mr. Peake

This lady was given an exit permit in October, 1939, for the purpose of undertaking a lecture tour in the United States, where she appears to have remained ever since. As my hon. Friend is aware, more stringent precautions have had to be adopted to deal with cases of this kind, but it is unhappily impossible to give them retrospective effect.
