HC Deb 06 December 1944 vol 406 c548W
Sir W. Wakefield

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will consider increasing the number of visits to England of civil servants of Dominion birth or residents who normally would not have the opportunity of visiting England to study problems and exchange views in England at first hand.

Colonel Stanley

I am in sympathy with the suggestion underlying the Question, but until the shipping position improves I am afraid it will be impracticable to make much progress in increasing the provision of sponsored visits.
