HC Deb 06 February 1945 vol 407 c1937W
Mr. Kendall

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department what arrangements are contemplated by his Department to enable business men to proceed to North and South America, North Africa, Turkey, the Dominions and other countries, in order to make arrangements for post-war trade; and how such facilities fox travel compare with those granted by other Allied nations to their nationals engaged upon similar pursuits.

Mr. Johnstone

Transport and other conditions do not permit of equal facilities for travel to all countries. My Department has not so far found that the demand for facilities to travel has been in excess of the available transport, although there are certain routes where it is still difficult to arrange for rapid journeys in both directions. The question of what additional facilities can be afforded as circumstances permit is being kept under constant review.
